ABA Therapy

What is ABA?
Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is an effective, scientifically-validated approach that uses the principles of human behavior to teach functional skills and to improve behavior challenges. ABA therapists and BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts) systematically implement evidence-based interventions to shape a learner’s behavior through repeated instruction. All targeted skills are identified through the assessment process.

ABA Connect provides therapy that is individualized, child-centered, and family-focused. Behavior analysts develop meaningful programs using evidence-based procedures to teach skills that will enhance your child’s opportunities for success at home, school, and in the community.

How Much Therapy is Appropriate?

ABA Connect offers full and half-day programs, depending upon your child’s needs. All learners are different, and your BCBA may see a need for increasing or decreasing therapy hours. As your child develops new skills and prosocial behaviors, their therapy hours will be systematically reduced until they no longer need support.

Parent Involvement

Family involvement is integral to any successful ABA intervention. At ABA Connect, we provide training on using behavioral procedures at home and in the community for all caregivers. Our BCBAs work one-on-one with family members to ensure your child uses their skills and prosocial behaviors in their natural environment, not just in the clinic.

Your BCBA will be readily available to discuss your concerns and ideas. You’ll have team meetings once every 4 to 6 weeks to discuss your child’s progress and the trajectory of their intervention.
