Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an effective application of the evidence-based science of understanding behavior. ABA uses the principles of behavior and learning to improve the quality of life for our learners by producing lasting, meaningful changes in behavior.
ABA treatment focuses on teaching and improving appropriate behavior and skills, while decreasing maladaptive and dangerous behavior.
Individualized, in-home or center-based services provide for best practice to implement skills.
