Applied Behavior Analysis

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based approach that uses function-based interventions to support the development of functional replacement behaviors while reducing the occurrence of dangerous or maladaptive behaviors for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other development disabilities. It focuses on understanding behavior and teaching new skills in a positive and supportive environment. While ABA has years of research for teaching new skills to autistic individuals, its impact expands further than Autism. ABA therapy may also be helpful for children with ADHD, ODD, IDD, and other disabilities that impact the child’s learning in traditional formats such as school or speech/occupational therapy, alone.

How Does ABA Therapy Help?

  • Empowers Communication: ABA therapy enhances communication skills, enabling children to express their needs and desires effectively.
  • Develops Independence: Through structured learning, ABA therapy promotes independence in daily tasks, empowering children to navigate the world with confidence.
  • Builds Social Connections: By fostering social interaction skills, ABA therapy helps children form meaningful relationships and thrive in social settings.
