What is ABA Therapy
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the practice of applying the science and principles of behavior and learning in a systematic way to alter socially significant behavior in individuals. ABA therapy applies the principles of learning and behavior to increase desired behaviors which enable learning and development for an individual. ABA therapy fosters basic skills such as looking, listening, requesting and imitating, as well as complex skills such as reading, conversing and understanding another person’s perspective.

How Does ABA Therapy Work?
ABA therapy works by reinforcing and rewarding helpful behaviors that improve learning and communication skills.
Each session is guided by two principles:
Positive reinforcement is one of the main strategies used in ABA. When a behavior is followed by something that is valued (a reward), a person is more likely to repeat that behavior. Over time, this encourages positive behavior change.
Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence
Understanding antecedents (what happens before a behavior occurs) and consequences (what happens after the behavior) is another important part of any ABA program.

ABA Therapy Intake Process

Observational Evaluation for ABA Therapy
A Board Certified Behavioral Analyst (BCBA) will conduct an initial interview with the primary caregivers, observe the child to identify problem behaviors and determine treatment objectives & considerations for behavior management.
