What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
ABA is a scientific model catered to changing your child’s inappropriate/challenging behaviors and your overall family dynamics. ABA is effective for everyone - all ages, regardless of diagnosis or functioning level.
Every professional who teaches or interacts with your child goes through extensive training to do so effectively. Parenting - the most demanding, challenging, and continuous “job” that exists - does not come with any manual or formal education.
Stemming from the idea that there is a direct relationship between one’s behavior and his/her environment, ABA teaches you - the adult - exactly how to best interact with your child in order to see significant improvements in his/her behavior. The goal of behavioral therapy is to give you practical strategies so that you are able to implement them successfully and see the results within a short period of time.
The entire process is conducted in your home, your child’s school, or the community – the setting where the challenging behaviors occur – during your regular, everyday, routine. At the end of this process, your family will acquire a new and happier way of living and you will be the parent you want to be.
