Applied Behavioral Analysis/Therapy (ABA)

Applied Behavior Analysis is a science-based approach to the analysis, treatment, and reduction of problematic behavior. This type of therapy assists children and their families with challenging behavior while managing consequences in the environment. Our ABA therapists teach clients to engage in replacement behavior rather than problematic behavior.
