What is ABA?
ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy is a type of evidence-based treatment for individuals with autism and other developmental disorders. ABA therapy focuses on positive behavior change by understanding how behaviors are learned and using that information to decrease maladaptive behaviors and increase skill repertoires. ABA therapy can be used to decrease behaviors such as aggression, self-injurious behaviors, disruptive behaviors, etc. It can also be used to address deficits in communication, social skills, adaptive skills, fine/gross motor, and cognition. The goal of ABA therapy is to foster independence and teach socially significant behaviors.
Primary methods of teaching include Discrete Trial Training (DTT), Incidental Teaching Procedures, and Natural Environment Training (NET). A functional behavior assessment will be conducted for each child to identify their core strengths and areas of concern. A individualized behavior plan will then be developed with specific goals for the child and family to meet. All services will be conducted in the home and community settings.
