What Is ABA Therapy?
ABA, or "Applied Behavior Analysis," is the standard of care for the treatment of autism spectrum disorders. ABA therapy is rooted in the scientific study of the principles of learning and behavior. In ABA therapy, we use specialized assessment methods to understand what motivates your child. We then use this motivation to teach your child socially significant behaviors.

ABA therapy has been shown to benefit a wide range of populations but is most consistently recognized as a treatment for autism spectrum disorders. Any individual needing to improve in a developmental or behavioral area would be considered “eligible” for ABA therapy. Some insurance companies will limit coverage to those individuals who hold an autism spectrum diagnosis.
We provide families who have children with special needs the opportunity to improve the independence, inclusion, and overall quality of life of their child. We do this through evidence-based, pragmatic treatment, consultation and teaching based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis.
