WHAT IS ABA?(Applied Behavior Analysis)

“Applied Behavior Analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior.” *

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

STEP 1

TEACHING

In applied behavior analysis (ABA) we break down skills into manageable steps.  Your child builds on small improvements over time to achieve real world results.

STEP 2

REWARDING SUCCESS

We use well-established behavioral principles of reinforcement and shaping to teach skills and improve challenging behaviors.

STEP 3

PROGRESS

We measure your child’s progress at every step, assessing the plan and updating as necessary. We love data and use it to inform all our decision-making around your child’s program.

STEP 4

MEANINGFUL RESULTS

Over time, small successes grow. Your child masters new skills and reduces challenging behaviors to meet his or her full potential.
