What is ABA?
ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis. Applied Behavior Analysis uses positive reinforcement and scientific principles designed to analyze and change behavior systematically in order to discourage problematic behaviors and encourage desirable, age-appropriate behaviors. ABA-based therapies are structured, collect data on target skills or behaviors, and provide positive strategies for changing responses and behaviors. Our ABA program uses Discrete Trial Learning, based on the understanding that practice helps a child master a skill. Larger skills are broken into small, attainable goals, and our young learners are able to build on behaviors they have mastered to work towards more advanced goals.
Empirical scientific research has found that ABA is highly effective in driving behavior change, and ABA Therapy is the sole instruction method recommended by the Department of Health Early Intervention program for children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. All of our ABA programs are individualized for each of our young learners’ specific strengths and weaknesses and written specifically for each of them by certified special education teachers. We have seen tremendous gains in our students, both behaviorally and socially.
