What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis is a scientifically structured learning approach that focuses on the acquisition of socially significant skills while simultaneously decreasing maladaptive behaviors. ABA methods involve application of basic behavioral practices (positive reinforcement, repetition, and prompting) to facilitate the development of language, positive skills, and social behavior as well as to help reduce everyday social problems and serious behavior disorders.

ABA therapy will analyze the developing skills and identify the insufficiencies during an initial assessment of your child’s abilities across various areas. Often enough, children on the autism spectrum include areas of verbal communication, such as the ability to understand and speak to parents and peers, begin requesting: food, playtime, emotional needs, and other items. Nonverbal children will be able to attain the ability to make gestures to understand social cues.
