Applied Behavior Analysis is an evidence-based practice that has been shown to be highly effective in teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorder the skills they require to lead independent and productive lives. Through the use of techniques such as Discrete Trial Teaching, Shaping, Positive Reinforcement, Teaching in the Natural Environment, and others, we are able to help children learn a variety of skills.
Your child will work one-on-one with their trained behavior technician on individual and group skills in an age-appropriate setting.
Their therapy will be monitored by their assigned Board Certified Behavior Analyst or BCBA. The BCBA will meet with you regularly to plan the goals and monitor the progress of the child. The BCBA will also guide the parents in education about autism and ABA so the child can be successful in their home, school, and other environments.
After 4 years of intensive behavioral treatment 48% of participants showed rapid learning, achieved average post-treatment scores, and were succeeding in regular education classrooms.*
