Your questions answered

CLOSED

What is ABA?

ABA therapy is a research-based therapy approach that helps children with Autism and other developmental disorders learn important new skills while working through everyday barriers, social difficulties and challenging behaviors.  

A Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will develop a unique treatment plan for your child through formal assessment as well as through an in-depth interview with you and/or your family. A therapist (Registered Behavior Technician) will work with your child one-on-one or in small groups to teach a variety of skills and positive behaviors such as communication, social awareness, positive peer interactions, academic engagement, self-care skills, play skills and more.

ABA therapy is also proven to be effective in working through behaviors such as tantrums, bed-wetting, feeding problems, aggression, self-injury, and other destructive or dangerous behaviors.

Effective ABA therapy is not a "one size fits all" approach and should never feel as such. In order to achieve a truly individualized treatment plan, A BCBA will customize the intervention to each child's skills, needs, interests and preferences. This means that an ABA program for one child may look completely different from another child's.

The goal of ABA therapy is to help your child learn new skills and be able to do more things on their own.
