ABA Therapy

February 8th, 2019

What is ABA Therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based form of therapy that focuses on increasing positive and helpful behaviors while also decreasing unwanted behaviors. It can help increase language and communication skills, improve focus, memory, and academic performance, and enhance social skills with peers and adults. ABA is oftentimes a primary tool when working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities.

ABA therapy is customized to meet the needs and goals of each child. Our team will work with each family to help develop these goals and strategies based on the child's interests and skills in order to increase positive and helpful behaviors.

Our growing ABA therapy program is ideal for children 18 months old to 12 years of age. Our team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts and Registered Behavior Technicians will work with each child and their family to develop an ABA program to meet the needs of that individual child.

* Please note- a physician referral is required for ABA therapy services.
