Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is the leading evidence-based practice treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. In order to understand the relationship between a child’s behavior and their environment, ABA uses distinct principles from the scientific study of behavior analysis. At Teach ABA Learning Center, the Board Certified Behavior Analyst will apply behavioral principles to increase socially significant behaviors while also teaching appropriate alternatives and necessary skill sets individualized to your child’s program.
ABA therapy is provided as an early intensive intervention for children aged 2 years and older. Benefits of center-based ABA include a concentration of clinical resources, on-site BCBAs, peers for social skills training, and a preschool-like environment.
Typical goals include:
- Functional Communication
- Social Skills Development
- Independent and Interactive Play Behavior
- Small Group Skills
- Daily Living Skills (Potty-Training, Self-Feeding, etc.)
- Reduction of Problem Behaviors
- Preparation for Transition to School
