More Info About ABA Therapy
What is Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is used to treat behaviors of social significance. Whether your child has a formal diagnosis or behaviors of concern, we are here to help. “ABA is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior.” (Baer, Wolf, & Risley 1968). We have 10 years of experience treating a variety of diagnoses and problem behaviors including: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Delays, Sleep Disorders, and Feeding Issues Due to Selectivity.
