What is ABA Therapy?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is an evidence-based form of therapy that focuses on increasing positive and helpful behaviors while also decreasing unwanted behaviors. It can help increase language and communication skills, improve focus, memory, and academic performance, and enhance social skills with peers and adults. ABA is oftentimes a primary tool when working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. ABA therapy is customized to meet the needs and goals of each child. Our ABA therapists will work with each family to help develop these goals and strategies based on the child’s interests and skills in order to increase positive and helpful behaviors.
