What is Applied Behavioral Analysis?

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based approach that focuses on teaching an individual socially significant behaviors. Some examples of socially significant behaviors are:

  • Communication

  • Daily living skills 

  • Play skills

  • Classroom readiness

What are the benefits of ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has been used and studied for decades and research has found that there are many positive impacts that ABA therapy has on the child's growth and development:

  • Increased language and communication skills

  • Improved attention, focus, and memory

  • Increased academic skills

  • Enhanced social skills

  • Marked reduction of aggressive and self-injurious behaviors

What Types of Support Do You Provide?

We provide two different models of ABA support: Focused Support and Comprehensive Support. The type of support and number of hours per week recommended will depend on a few factors:

  • Goals for support

  • Your child's strengths and needs

  • Family circumstances and preferences

  • Your child's response to ABA support

Focused Support

Focused Support targets a few functional skills at a time and typically requires between 10-25 hours of support per week. Some examples of functional skills include but are not limited to:

  • Reducing dangerous or life threatening problem behaviors while increasing healthy, supportive behaviors

  • Behaviors for transitioning

  • Social skills with family and peers

Comprehensive Support

Comprehensive Support targets multiple domains of behavior and usually requires between 30-40 hours of support per week. Some examples of behavior domains include but are not limited to:

 

  • Communication

  • Imaginative play

  • Sharing with peers

  • Toilet training

  • Daily living skills

  • Independent leisure activities

  • Following instructions

The location of support, again, depends on multiple factors, including but not limited to the goals and needs of the child and the family's preferences.
