How does ABA therapy work?2021-02-28T07:08:22+00:00

ABA therapy works by slowly changing your child’s behavior with proven behavioral treatment principles. Your child is encouraged with reinforcers (food, toys, computer time, bubbles, verbal praise, etc.) for positive behaviors. Negative behaviors are ignored and replaced with positive replacement skills.

Our goal is to increase or decrease targeted behaviors in everyday situations so your child can live a functional, happy life.
