Applied Behavior Analysis
Applied Behavior Analysis is a science that addresses the reduction of socially-significant maladaptive or inappropriate behaviors, while teaching replacement skills to address deficits in various domains of functioning. ABA provides individualized treatment specific to the functions of behaviors and uses techniques to teach more socially-appropriate replacement and functional skills.
Early diagnosis and treatment are essential for promoting long-term progress while minimizing the significance/overall impact of observed delays. Individuals who receive treatment early on are often less likely to require intensive treatment as they age. It is imperative that maladaptive behaviors and skill deficits are identified and addressed as early as possible.
Applied Behavior Analysis is an empirically validated and evidence based treatment for a variety of individuals, including but not limited to those diagnosed with:
• Developmental Disabilities/Delays
• Expressive/Receptive or Mixed Language Delays
• Down Syndrome
• Typically developing children who display maladaptive behaviors
