improving quality of life through effective intervention
ABA is the applied use of behavioral principles to everyday situations with the goal of either increasing or decreasing targeted behaviors
At times, families just want a second opinion. We are available to consult with a team to make recommendations for program improvement.
A reinforcer is never defined as an item or activity, but only by whether it is associated with an increase in the targeted behavior.
This commonly asked question has no single answer.
Children need, and education law supports, the use of effective interventions for children with autism.
Our mission is to assist individuals to achieve their potential to live independently and with dignity.
ABA, applied behavior analysis, is simply the application of behavioral principles, to everyday situations, that will, over time, increase or decrease targeted behaviors. ABA has been used to help individuals acquire many different skills, such as language skills, self-help skills, and play skills; in addition, these principles can help to decrease maladaptive behaviors such as aggression, self-stimulatory behaviors, and self-injury. There are many providers of ABA services, many of whom are quite good. Frequently, a parent will choose a qualified provider with whom they share similar philosophical approaches in the application of intensive behavioral interventions.
