Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy is a treatment method for autism and other developmental disabilities that is based on the science of learning and behavior. Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) are trained to understand how behavior and learning work and how the environment affects behavior and learning. ABA Therapy helps children learn meaningful and socially appropriate behavior that will improve their learning and daily life, while also decreasing behaviors that interfere with learning or are harmful. Some of the skill areas taught include, but are not limited to, language and communication, social skills, executive functioning skills, school readiness, self-help skills, and behavior management.
About the Program
Our ABA Professionals, Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs), work with children 1:1 or in small groups, under the supervision and training of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
ABA Therapy requires a physician’s prescription for evaluation and treatment. Evaluation & Assessment determines the number of daily therapy hours prescribed, often anywhere from 2-8 hours per day. Not all insurance providers will cover ABA therapy and an Autism Diagnosis is typically required for insurance coverage. Check with your insurance provider to see if ABA Therapy is covered under your plan. If you feel your child needs ABA therapy, please contact your child’s pediatrician.
