Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is a scientific-based evidence approach that examines an individual’s interactions and responses within their environment and seeks to develop new skills and replace undesirable behaviors.
Using researched-based interventions, behavior therapists provide helpful alternatives to reduce undesirable behaviors, enhance social interactions, increase communication, and improve the life skills of individuals with Autism.
Individualized ABA therapy in the comfort of your home helps your child master new skills in a familiar and natural environment.
For children that spend most of their time in the home, home-based therapy can enhance the overall family dynamics and provide a great foundation for your child’s development.
Your child gains awareness and independence they can utilize, allowing them to improve functioning in the family unit and social environments.
Our highly trained therapists target communication, social skills, and maladaptive behaviors in our state-of-the-art facilities.
ABA therapy in a center allows children the opportunity to engage with and learn alongside peers, while receiving 1:1 therapy in a highly structured and supportive environment.
In addition, our centers provide social skills groups, advanced communication development, and school readiness programs, within small groups of children of similar age and skill.
Your child will gain the skills and abilities to integrate, navigate, and interact in a group setting within various environments.
