Applied Behavior Analysis is a scientific discipline focused on understanding and improving human behavior. Using an empirical framework, it seeks to objectively identify behaviors that are socially significant and implement effective interventions to improve upon them. It is highly regarded as the most effective method for treating individuals with autism and other developmental disorders and has been endorsed by the Surgeon General, National Institute of Mental Health, American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Neurology.
At ABS Behavioral Services, we use the science behind our field to teach your child the skills they need in a fun way! Our kids LOVE coming to therapy because we focus on learning through play and incorporate the interests and preferences of our neurodiverse clients in each session. Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) will develop individualized programs designed to build skills sequentially so our clients continue learning as their proficiency increases. Trained therapists will administer these programs, working one on one with clients, while consulting with and being supervised by a BCBA.
Caregiver training is an important part of a client’s success in therapy. Our BCBAs teach parents the skills needed to promote lasting, meaningful change in our client’s lives that extend beyond the therapeutic setting.
