Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

THE SCIENCE OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR

Using only evidence-based strategies, we apply ABA therapy to:

  • Teach new skills (like tying shoes, brushing teeth, academic skills- reading, number sense, language acquisition, appropriate play with siblings or peers).

  • Build independence with everyday tasks (getting dressed, bathing, bathroom skills)

  • Address behaviors that get in the way with learning, socializing, and life goals

  • Keep students in the school setting they want to stay in

    and many more

ABA AS A PRACTICE

ABA is a branch of psychology but behavior analysts are not always psychologists. We provide therapeutic interventions using methods that have specific characteristics.

WHAT WE STUDY

We study (and change) observable and measurable behaviors. We assess those behaviors and their effect on the environment. From there we identify WHY those behaviors occur; this gives us insight on how to change the behaviors to make a difference in the person’s life. Some behaviors are more intense; others are not. All behaviors are different- and it’s critical to identify WHY those behaviors happen in order to appropriately change them.

HOW WE MAKE BEHAVIOR CHANGE

We provide practical and effective methods to reinforce behaviors we want to see and STOP reinforcing those interfering behaviors.

HOW WE MEASURE SUCCESS

We use DATA to make decisions. We measure the behavior before and after the treatment to see if the desired behavior change is occurring. This entire time, the TEAM works together to ensure success.

How we achieve success:

 Work with the team and assess WHY the behavior occurs.
