Applied Behavior

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a type of therapy that focuses on improving specific behaviors, such as social skills, communication, reading, and academics as well as adaptive learning skills, such as fine motor dexterity, hygiene, grooming, domestic capabilities, punctuality, and job competence.


ABA helps children improve social interactions, learn new skills, and maintain positive behaviors. ABA also helps transfer skills and behavior from one situation to another, controlling situations where negative behaviors arise and minimizing negative behaviors. 

Your ABA therapist will:

  1. Determine which behaviors require change

  2. Set goals and expected outcomes

  3. Establish ways to measure changes and improvements

  4. Evaluate where your child is now

  5. Help your child learn new skills and/or learn how to avoid negative behaviors

  6. Regularly review your chlid's progress

  7. Decide whether or not further behavior modification is necessary
