Applied Behavioral Analysis
What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the evidence-based methodology of teaching that has become a widely accepted and effective treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ABA focuses on improving socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree and relies on continuous assessment and analysis of data in generating developmentally and functionally appropriate goals for each child.
What is Family Training?
All ABA cases will begin with an information session for parents to begin to explore a general introduction to ABA; basic procedures of ABA; a description of components of our ABA program such as reinforcement, generalization and family involvement/participation in daily sessions. During ongoing family training sessions topics will be broken down into specific components of ABA and include; functions of behavior; standard Behavioral Techniques; reinforcement and natural consequences. The family will be updated weekly about mastered skills and skills ready to be generalized.
Quality Provider Of Early Intervention Services
Behavioral Intervention Program
At A Plus Early Intervention our ABA providers have extensive and continuous training in Applied Behavior Analysis methods, strategies and procedures. Each ABA provider is under the supervision of an experienced Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
If significant maladaptive behaviors occur the ABA supervisor will work with the family and ABA service providers to develop a Behavioral Intervention Plan that is least restrictive. No behavior plan will be implemented without the consent of the parent. Additional training will be provided to the family and ABA service provider as needed for specific Behavioral Intervention Techniques.
