Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy uses basic principles of behavior to bring about meaningful and lasting changes in the behavior of individuals with autism. ABA Therapy has received endorsements from several state and federal agencies including the US Surgeon General, Autism Speaks and the American Academy of Pediatrics.
ABA Therapy consists of the following treatment options:
Comprehensive early intensive behavioral intervention services to relieve the core symptoms of autism.
Focused Treatments to reduce challenging behaviors associated with autism spectrum disorders such as stereotypy, non-compliance and tantrums.
Focused Treatments to increase functional independance across a variety of skill areas such as toileting, feeding and leisure.
Focused Treatments to improve overall communication skills regardless of an individual’s current communication abilities.
Social Skills Groups to address troubles establishing and maintaining relationships with peers
ABA Therapy is provided at the “location of need” which may include the individual’s home or school, the community, or a specialized treatment setting. All ABA Therapy programs are developed and supervised by Licensed and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) with significant experience working with individuals on the spectrum.
