OUR APPROACH


Applied Behavior Analysis

Applied Behavioral Analysis

ABA is an evidence-based practice that involves application of systematic environmental modifications to produce socially significant improvements in behavior (Baer, Wolf, and Risley, 1968). ABA is an individualized and collaborative behavioral treatment approach driven by assessment and data.

Comprehensive ABA interventions are designed to drive improvements in specific skills that are foundational for more global developmental changes. Treatment may be provided for an extended period of time, and may occur in a home or center setting. Programs are based on the behavior principles of reinforcement, using task analysis to break down skills into their parts, and then using repeated trials with systematic prompt fading. Skills are then generalized across stimuli, persons, and settings to ensure functionality and maintenance of skills taught. Parent/sibling/family involvement is strongly encouraged. Research supports the use of comprehensive ABA interventions as being highly effective in improving social skills, adaptive skills, and language skills when provided 25-40 hours per week. Earlier intervention has been shown to produce stronger results.

Verbal Behavior

We utilize a Verbal Behavior approach based on initial and ongoing assessments, including the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) developed by Dr. Mark Sundberg. For more information, you may visit http://www.marksundberg.com/vb-mapp.htm.
