Teen ABA Therapy

Teens need customized treatment plans when it comes to ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) Therapy. Autism symptoms are often not recognized early on but become more visible once children enter puberty, especially with what was formerly termed Asperger’s Syndrome.

Whether you’ve just received a late diagnosis, you’re dealing with changes in your IEP (Individualized Education Program) or feel your teen needs help with new skills now that they’re older, ABA Centers of America can provide the special attention that teens with autism need. It helps to have an objective third-party address behaviors so that family members don’t have to be “the bad guy.” And ABA Centers of America’s resources and flexible treatment programs mean there’s no long waiting list for your teenager to begin therapy.

Individualized ABA Therapy

ABA Centers of America doesn’t believe in a “one size fits all” treatment program. Our clients are individuals, and each of them is experiencing the world in a unique way. So our therapy plans are always customized, and they allow clients to work toward mutually agreed-upon goals.

Our treatment begins with a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) getting to know the client and family. They will conduct an assessment to determine recommended program goals. A Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) will then work with the client and family, observing and recording behavioral data that will help the BCBA create targeted programs. Each session is customized specifically to the child’s needs and family’s goals.

What To Expect

ABA Therapy programs are designed by our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and conducted by our Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs). Both are governed and licensed by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).



Our treatment begins with a BCBA getting to know your family, learning what behaviors you’re interested in improving and conducting an assessment to measure skills and abilities.


Goal Setting

Using the results from the assessment, our BCBAs collaborate with the family to create specific, reachable objectives to address desired behavior, new skills and recommended goals.


Custom Planning

The BCBA develops a program to teach target skills. Then an RBT works directly with the clients to implement the agreed-upon therapy and collect critical data.



The BCBA and RBT work together, measuring targeted skills and making changes to the program if necessary.
