about aba

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science dedicated to the understanding and improvement of human behavior. Behavior Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA)  focus on defining behaviors of social significance, sometimes referred to target behaviors. BCBAs intervene to improve target behaviors while demonstrating relationship between the intervention and behavior improvements. Once an effective intervention has been implemented, on-going data collection occurs. Further, BCBAs program for generalization and maintenance of all skills to ensure that the behaviors maintain over time and settings.

How aba helps

In short, ABA can be used to address almost any behavior.  If it is a behavior, and it can be observed, ABA principles exist that can be used to either increase or decrease that behavior.  As a discipline, ABA providers are charged with the improvement of socially significant behaviors including social skills, expressive and receptive communication, and repetitive or stereotyped behaviors. An ABA program targets specific developmental areas such as:

Listener responding skills
Functional language
Imitative skills
Coversation skills
Gross and fine motor skills
Functional play
Social skills
Functional/self-help skills
Toileting skills
Feeding problems
interfering behaviors including tantrums, self-injury, aggression, and stereotypic behaviors

our services

For some children, a Home-Based ABA program may be the most appropriate form of intervention. Home-based ABA allows for family involvement and training and helps children use the new skills they are learning in their natural setting. This option allows us to create functional goals and routines that help the child as well as the whole family.
