ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) Therapy

Center-Based ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) Therapy

ABA therapy targets skills such as: communication (receptive and expressive language), play/social skills, and adaptive living skills. Each student’s goals will be based on his/her IEP (Individualized Education Plan) and/or IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan).

  • may have difficulty with peer interactions
  • may have significant aggressive, self-injurious, or destructive behaviors

Students may receive from one to six hours per day of intensive 1:1 instruction, and schedules can be adjusted to suit the needs of each student/family. Call for specific rates.

Services include:

  • Fully trained staff of technicians who provide one-on-one therapy
  • Community outings/field trips for generalization and expansion of child’s interests
  • Coordination of additional services when appropriate (e.g., provision of one-on-one aide for preschool or day care center; school observations by consultant)
