Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is the most researched and empirically supported treatment for children and adolescents diagnosed with autism. ABA strives to understand and improve socially significant behaviors. ABA examines the interactions between people and their environment to determine the effects that an environment has on a person’s behavior (“why” a behavior occurs).
In clinical practice, ABA is used to teach new skills, improve performance in already acquired skills, and decrease challenging behaviors. ABA can be used to teach a wide range of skills including verbal behaviors, social skills, motor skills, functional living skills, as well as cognitive and reasoning skills.
Applied Behavioral Connections’ programs are designed to promote a welcoming learning environment where your child can grow and develop their abilities. Our organization offers individualized and group learning opportunities. Treatment plans are tailored to each child’s unique learning needs while providing frequency, oversight, and quality care.
