Customized ABA Therapy Program for Your Child's Individual Needs

What Is ABA Therapy?
Applied behavior analysis, also known as ABA, is a scientific approach to shaping appropriate behaviors and reducing problem behaviors.
Applied behavior analysis is well known as an evidence-based intervention for children diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). ABA is the leading approach to improving the developmental deficiencies associated with autism. ABA therapy is likely the best approach to your child’s development.
ABA can be defined as the science in which tactics derived from the principles of behavior are applied to improve socially significant behavior and experimentation is used to identify the variables responsible for the improvement in behavior.
In other words, ABA therapy focuses on human behavior and can increase desired behaviors and minimize unwanted behaviors.
ABA uses interventions that are based on what we know about how people act and how they learn and develop. The interventions that ABA providers recommend are based on what scientists, researchers, and specialists have discovered about what makes people do what they do and how people can learn new things and accomplish goals.
ABA therapy addresses specific problems and develops realistic solutions for those concerns to help people improve their quality of life. This is important for the person receiving ABA Therapy, rather than focusing on general ideas or generic goals that might not be applicable or meaningful to the person.
ABA is also based on seven core concepts. These concepts are known as the seven dimensions of ABA. Any ABA services that your child receives would include these characteristics in some way.
