Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA Therapy) is an evidence-based approach to reducing problem behaviors and teaching new skills. ABA Therapy studies the individual and their environment. It customizes a program to meet the client’s need. Behaviors we target include socialization and harm to self or others. Skills we teach include functional communication skills, play skills, and self-help skills. If you want to learn more about ABA Therapy, check out our blog series!
