Why Applied Behavior Analysis?

Today, 1 in 59 U.S. children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). While there’s no known cure for autism, it is treatable. With accurate, early diagnosis and evidence-based interventions, children with ASD can make significant behavioral and functional improvements and thrive at school, home, and in their communities.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is widely recognized as the most effective behavioral intervention for children with autism. ABA is no longer considered experimental; it’s an evidence-based, scientific approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment. Delivered by qualified autism service professionals, ABA is a customized step-by-step approach that increases useful behaviors and reduces those that may cause harm or interfere with learning.

ABA treatment can help a child with autism reduce maladaptive behaviors and increase appropriate communication, social, and daily living skills. ABA can improve issues with sleep, hygiene and self-care skills or can be used to reduce behaviors like physical and verbal aggression, self injury and other disruptive and self-stimulating behaviors.
