ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy is a therapeutic approach that identifies challenging and problematic behavior then applies interventions to modify the behavior to a more desirable outcome. ABA therapy is frequently used for clients on the autism spectrum. Individuals with autism may have difficulty expressing themselves appropriately. Through the use of ABA therapy, these individuals learn and engage in more positive behaviors and expressions. These behaviors and expressions align with the “laws” of behavior and learning that are generally accepted in psychosocial development.
ABA therapy uses techniques such as positive reinforcement to increase the likelihood a client will engage in a positive or desirable behavior, thereby reducing the occurrences of unwanted or negative behaviors. In this way, the therapeutic approach shapes the client’s behavior to be closer to peers based on development expectations.

How It Works?Research over the last 40+ years has shown the efficacy of ABA Therapy for individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Our services begin with an intake consultation with a member of our administrative team. This is a time where families are able to discuss primary areas of concern and determine if ABC can meet their needs.
During this process our team will determine eligibility for services and navigate the insurance process for you. You will be asked to fill out an application, provide proof of medical diagnosis of Autism spectrum disorder, provide a prescription for ABA Therapy services, and provide proof of insurance.
The next step is to assess your child’s skill level, which is necessary to guide the development of an individualized Autism treatment plan. The assessment will be conducted by a licensed Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and will include the use of various assessment tools. Typically, assessments are conducted in the home setting. However, arrangements can be made to conduct the assessment in an area that best suits your family’s needs.
Through assessment in everyday situations such as home and school, behaviors are targeted and a detailed therapy plan is developed. Throughout the treatment, data is recorded and analyzed in order to show progress of meaningful change and to evaluate, modify, and refine treatment for the most socially significant outcomes.
