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.
