Autism Treatment

What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis is a scientific approach for: 

  • Researching the relationship between behaviors and the environment  

  • Designing methods to change behavior 

  • Applying these methods to improve behaviors that are important in people’s lives 

  • The core concept is that the consequences of what we do affect what we learn and what we will do in the future. 

Whether you are a concerned parent, sibling, friend, teacher, or any other support for an individual diagnosed with Autism, you know the challenges that are faced with obtaining help! Individuals with autism are often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. ABA therapy is a treatment approach using evidence-based practices centered around positive reinforcement. Basically, ABA aims to figure out what environmental factors motivate someone and manipulates that factor to achieve the desired behavior.
