A Little About Autism
Autism may affect the way a person engages socially with others, may affect speech and coordination, may increase the likelihood of an individual having more rigid rituals and resistance to change, and/or may lend an individual to atypical sensory experiences. Each individual with autism spectrum disorder experiences the world differently.

The Science of ABA
ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis. In practice, ABA is the application of the principles of learning and behavior to change socially relevant behaviors.
ABA uses systematic, evidence-based methods to improve behaviors.
It is often a misconception that only individuals with challenging behaviors benefit from ABA. An ABA program is individualized to meet the needs of the client and can improve communication, cognitive, play, social, and adaptive skills.
A basic tenet of any ABA program is that of reinforcement. This is the idea that we are going to use items or activities that a person likes to change their behavior.
ABA encourages positive behaviors by teaching your child functional and appropriate ways to gain access to the items they want.
All goals are tracked, measured, and analyzed in order to maximize your child’s results.
