What Is ABA Therapy?
Effective, evidence-based treatment for children with Autism and other needs
About Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Applied Behavior Analysis is, most simply, the science of behavior. At its core, behavior analysis involves observing an undesirable behavior, and working, through empirical methods, to change it in a positive manner.
The "applied" component refers to how behavior analysis is used to change behaviors for individuals with developmental disabilities, including autism, through proven methods and interventions.
Because it is critical to observe the behaviors in the environments in which they are most commonly manifested, the vast majority of ABA Therapy is performed in the client's home.
How Does It Work?
When starting ABA services in the home setting, the first phase is to assess for your child's skill level and present maladaptive behaviors. This includes your Board-Certified Behavior Analyst / Intervention Professional conducting interviews, reviewing medical history, and observing and interacting directly with your child in a naturalistic setting to gather baseline information. This information and data are used to create individual programming for your child based on his or her specific needs.
