Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science that can be used for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. ABA is evidence based, data driven, and can help to decrease aggressive behaviors, and increase communication, social, and independent living skills by systematically applying research based interventions.

Our therapists provide structured parent training as well as collaboration with school, daycare, other therapists, and doctors.
Therapists use a range of techniques including but not limited to: discrete trial training, functional communication training, reinforcement systems, and positive behavior supports.
Assessment will depend on age and target skills; some of the assessments used by our therapists include: PEAK, VB-MAPP, AFLS, and ABBLLS. Questionnaires and surveys are also used to ensure a well rounded, all inclusive treatment plan.
Duration of services depends on intensity and medical need. While some require 10 hours a week others require 20 hours a week. Duration for each client will be determined during assessment period and will vary throughout the span of the sessions.
Data is collected every session, and progress is monitored at least once a week. If progress is not seen in the data trends BCBA will provide training and guidance to the therapist, change delivery method for targets with limited progress, ensure that all prerequisite skills are met, and/or re-evaluate to ensure appropriate skills are being taught.
