Applied behavior analysis, or ABA therapy, is a proven method for decreasing maladaptive behaviors in children who have developmental conditions such as autism spectrum disorder. ABA therapy is a teaching method that reduces complicated tasks to small, instructional steps in order to improve behaviors in areas such as asking for help, paying attention, communicating their needs, making friends, waiting, and following directions.Learn more
Each child is evaluated independently to determine their skill level, and then a program is developed that will specifically address their needs. Typically, a program duration of between one and three years achieves optimal results, but focused ABA therapy programs of between 10 and 25 hours on limited areas, also can target specific areas that need the most improvement. Since each child's ABA therapy is based on their specific needs, there's no pre-set time frame for the program.Learn more
Research and experience have shown that although ABA therapy can be effective in a clinical setting, it's often more effective when done in the home, community or school setting. This enables the child to learn to independently interact in their natural environment and can increase the success of the overall program. It also enables the student to learn adaptive behaviors in settings that may be unique to them.Learn more

It can also target specific areas of importance to the child or their family.Learn more
