What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) uses evidence-based techniques and principles to increase or decrease target behaviors. ABA therapy is designed to meet each individual’s unique needs, taking into account their environment, preferences, and dislikes.

Who We Serve

We will expand the age range we serve as services are developed.

We currently serve individuals from birth through age 22.

Services Offered

Verbal Behavior:

  • Direct teaching instruction is used to run skill acquisition programs developed for each client. Deficits are assessed using the VBMAPP.
  • Natural environment training applies the principles of verbal behavior in a more natural environment to ensure generalization across people, places, and items.
  • Verbal behavior is always conducted one to one.

School Readiness: 

Our school readiness program is designed to teach children independence and expected school behavior. Skills developed through this program include but are not limited to: attending to group instruction, turn taking, waiting, problem solving, and transitioning. Participants of our school readiness program are always one to one, however, staff fades out their presence as each client develops the independence skills they need to be successful in each setting.

  • 20-minute circle time is part of our school readiness curriculum. This provides an opportunity to teach in-seat behavior, choral responding, and attending to group instruction.
  • 15-minute teacher table lessons in math and language arts provide an opportunity to work on waiting, attending to group instruction, and independent seat work.
  • 15-minute centers for math and language arts target in-seat behavior, independent seat work, problem solving, and transitioning.

Social Skills: 

The VBMAPP and AFLS are both used in identifying deficits and measurable goals. The Zones of Regulation of and (PEERS®) curriculums are used to teach the outlined goals and targets. Social skills training is conducted in a ratio no greater than 3:1.

Daily Living Skills: A client’s independence is assessed using the AFLS protocol which includes a wide range of areas including basic living skills home skills, and community skills. Target behaviors include tooth brushing, toileting, dressing, and eating.

Young Adult Programs: We are currently developing a program for young adults. Skills will be assessed and programmed for using the AFLS and (PEERS®) protocols.
