Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for children with Autism

Applied Behavior Analysis Services

One of the most effective interventions used to treat Autism is Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA. This is a widely accepted approach that has been shown to improve the symptoms of Autism in children. ABA draws on the principles of learning theory in order to improve social behaviors to a significant degree. Teaching methods and procedures focus on reinforcing productive and functional behaviors while reducing non-productive or unwanted behaviors. Measurable outcomes and data collection ensures ongoing monitoring and intervention effectiveness. Thousands of research studies have shown that an intensive early intervention using ABA is highly effective.

Please refer to CDC website about Autism Treatment for more information.

Who Should Provide ABA Intervention?

An ABA program should be designed by and supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) with implementation of interventions by Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT). Our staff is supervised by BCBA-D (a Clinical Psychologist that is also a Board Certified Behavior Analyst) and our highly trained therapists consist of Registered Behavioral Technicians (RBT) with comprehensive didactic and clinical training.

Our ABA program works with children ages 18 months to 8 years old. Commonly, health insurance should cover this service. ABA services are provided in the home, clinic, and community settings.

Behavior Assessments

Including FBAs (Functional Behavior Analysis)

Behavior Assessments

A Functional Assessment is an evaluation that identifies the function, or reason, why a specific behavior is occurring along with factors that potentially maintain that behavior. Identifying causation of interfering behaviors allows the clinician to administer an appropriate, function-based intervention that is more likely to be effective and efficient in treatment. Functional Assessments allow the supervisor to design behavior interventions that reduce problematic behavior and increase supportive, socially appropriate skills as a replacement. Functional Assessment information can be carried out through indirect and direct measurements.
