What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
Behavior analysis focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place. Positive reinforcement is one such principle. When a behavior is followed by some sort of reward, the behavior is more likely to be repeated. ABA is the use of these techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior.

While the causes of autism remain unknown, there are proven behavioral treatment options.
ABA is the only treatment which is scientifically proven to help children learn social and communication skills while simultaneously decreasing inappropriate behaviors. This therapy is most effective when children receive treatment at a young age and when treatment is intensive. However, people with autism can still benefit from ABA at any age.
Many children with Autism benefit from additional therapies.
Our experience has shown us that the very best approach is when all services are integrated and coordinated together. Coordinated services relieve the stress on parents of juggling intensive therapy schedules, commitments and appointments.
Our integrated model removes the negative effects of treatment conflict, when one professional is advising something that conflicts with another, leaving parents caught in between. Our team coordinates all facets of services so that every intervention and team member work together to steer progress in the same direction.
