Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

Helping Families Create Their Future

Child

Our goal is to understand your child’s strengths and challenges with early intervention and help make meaningful, lasting changes in your child’s life.

Teen

Our ABA Therapists work one-on-one with teens helping them learn to make friends, regulate their emotions, improve communication skills and more.

Adult

Our adult autism services help people on the spectrum with daily-living skills while preparing them for independent living or post-academic life.

The ABA Centers of America Difference

Autism is a group of developmental disabilities, including Asperger’s Syndrome, that result in social interaction, verbal communication and behavioral challenges. Our autism treatment involves the latest proven advances in ABA Therapy to assess a client’s functionality, analyze data and then create individualized action plans. Our center for autism doesn’t engage in “aversion therapies,” focusing on negative reinforcement. We work patiently with all clients and their families to reach agreed-upon goals.

What Is ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy is a scientific method of observing behavior, teaching new social skills and decreasing any problem behavior (tantrums, hitting, screaming, etc.) in those with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Hundreds of studies have revealed ABA Therapy to improve communication, social relationships, play skills in children with autism and self-care. ABA Therapy is designed by our Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and implemented by our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs).

Is ABA Right for Our Family

Behavioral interventions and the treatment of autism through ABA Therapy are effective if your child is having difficulty learning and acquiring critical skills, having trouble communicating and exhibiting problem behavior that interferes with daily functioning. Many parents of children in ABA Therapy report a significant reduction in daily stress as a result of working with behavioral therapists.

Research comparing ABA with other therapy and education programs shows that autistic children who receive ABA treatment make greater progress in more skill areas than children who participate in other programs. In one long-lasting study of ABA Therapy, psychologists showed that 90% of the test children substantially improved learning and communication skills, including verbal behavior.

Today’s ABA Therapy has evolved significantly from its beginnings in the 1960s with Ivar Lovaas and discrete trial training. ABA Therapy is considered an evidence-based, best-practice treatment for autism and related disorders by the U.S. Surgeon General, the American Psychological Association and advocacy groups like Autism Speaks. This means that ABA has passed scientific tests of its usefulness, quality and effectiveness.
