Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy is a treatment method based on the study of learning and behavior principles that encourages socially productive behaviors using the child’s unique source of motivation. Its services include interventions for academic and pre-academic skills, expressive and receptive communication, job competence, self-care skills, play skills and community integration. ABA is a proven effective treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorder and benefits many individuals requiring behavioral or developmental support.
Doctorate Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA-Ds) or Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) perform assessments, develop treatment plans and oversee the implementation of the treatment plan. Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) and other trained professionals implement the treatment plan.
