Helping Your Family Is Our Passion
What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. The “Applied” means we apply our understanding of how behavior works to real life situations. The goals of ABA are to increase behaviors that are helpful and lead to a more fulfilling life and to decrease behaviors that prevent positive outcomes. It is not a one size fits all therapy; it is personalized to each individual and incorporates social validity to ensure the outcomes are advantageous to everyone involved. Some potential outcomes may be:
- A child communicates what they need
- A child makes a friend
- A teen participates in a club or on a sport’s team
- A child develops new things they enjoy
- An adult learns to read
The results are endless!
In Home ABA Therapy
Our RBTs (Registered Behavior Technicians) work directly with your child under the direction of a supervisor (BCBA). Treatment begins with the BCBA assessing your child and writing a treatment plan with the input of the family. Next, services are delivered in your home, the community, and sometimes school and daycare settings. Progress is constantly assessed by the BCBA to ensure the treatment is effective. In Home Therapy is especially beneficial because we work on skills in the environment they will most likely take place. Some skills that may be targeted are:
- Social skills
- Executive Functioning
- Safety Skills
- Challenging Behavior
- Potty Training
- Reading and other academic skills that will increase communication and safety
- Calming Techniques
Partnering with parents and providing them the tools they need is important to our company. We teach practical strategies to handle problem behaviors, which empowers parents and gives them an increased understanding of their child. We provide tools and training that enables parents to continue our strategies when we aren’t there. Parent guidance leads to improved relationships in the family, lower levels of stress, and higher life satisfaction. Studies have shown greater outcomes for children when their parents are involved in their ABA therapy.
