Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science dedicated to the understanding and improvement of human behavior. Our Behavior Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) at BCA in Wilmington 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.

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.
