Applied Behavior Analysis

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) focuses on improving specific behaviors such as social skills or adaptive learning skills like hygiene or feeding.  ABA therapy is often practiced with individuals diagnosed with autism to improve social interactions, learn new skills, and maintain positive behaviors. ABA also helps transfer skills and behavior from one setting to another such as from home to the community.  ABA services can be provided in the home or clinic.

Together, you and your ABA therapist, you will:

  • Determine behaviors that should be addressed
  • Set goals
  • Monitor progress
  • Modify the intervention plan as required
