Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

How ABA Works

During the initial assessment, the behavior analyst will sit down with you and ask you questions regarding your child’s skills, behaviors concerns, and your priorities for therapy. The behavior analyst will then spend some time with your child assessing their current communication, social and behavioral skills. After this process, an individualized treatment plan is created and goals are created that will guide your child’s therapy sessions.

During ABA sessions, working with your child will look like play. The Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) and Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) determine what your child enjoys and use those activities to help teach skills targeted for their sessions. Additionally, both RBTs and BCBAs will attend various sessions, observe and gather information on your child, to show you their progress.

The behavior analyst should also meet with you (the parent) at regular intervals to ensure they are sharing what is being targeted during therapy. During these sessions, the behavior analyst will go over your child’s progress, teaching methods that work best with your child, and different strategies to help you achieve your goals with your child.

One to One
One to one therapy involves a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) working directly with your child alongside the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and your child. This can be done in your home or within a center.
Caregiver Skills Training

Caregiver skills training is a crucial part of our service model. This includes the BCBA spending time with you, your child’s progress checking in regarding your child’s priorities and any further needs or concerns. Additionally to review, the BCBA will discuss strategies they use to help your child, and what you can do to work alongside them to receive faster results. Including caregivers in our services helps us achieve a whole-child, collaborative approach.

Social Skills Groups
Social Skills Groups involve multiple children of the same developmental and skill level working together on similar goals. These groups often involve working on play skills, following instructions in a group, and communication with peers.
Functional Living Skills

Functional living skills work with your child to learn how to dress themselves, eat with utensils, brush their teeth, and can even assist with toilet training.  The goal is to help your child be as independent as possible.

Functional Communication Skills
ABA teaches functional communication. This means teaching your child to be able to get their needs and want met with communication. This may include vocal speech, augmentative communication, pictures, or even pointing.
Behavior Reduction

Behavior Reduction works on behaviors that are harmful to your child or other people. The therapist will work on replacing these behaviors with other skills such as functional communication.
