    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is ABA therapy and how does it help?

    ABA, or Applied Behavior Analysis, is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. It helps improve social, communication, and learning skills through positive reinforcement. Most commonly used with individuals with autism, ABA can help increase useful behaviors and reduce those that may cause harm or interfere with learning.

    Who can benefit from ABA therapy?

    While ABA is widely recognized for its benefits to individuals with autism spectrum disorders, it is also effective for those with other developmental issues, behavioral challenges, or learning disabilities. ABA therapy can be adapted to meet the needs of any age group, from toddlers to adults.

    What does an ABA therapy session look like?

    Each ABA session is tailored to the individual’s specific needs, but generally, it involves structured activities that promote skill development and behavior improvement. Therapy can include one-on-one interaction or group activities, depending on the goals of the session. A therapist will use various techniques such as modeling, repetition, and reinforcement to encourage positive behaviors.

    How long does it typically take to see progress with ABA therapy?

    Progress can vary significantly from one individual to another, depending on factors like the age of the person, the specific behaviors being addressed, and how consistently the therapy is applied. Some might notice improvements within a few months, while others may take longer. It’s important to set realistic goals and be patient, as behavioral change is a gradual process.

    Can parents and caregivers be involved in ABA therapy?

    Absolutely! Parent and caregiver involvement is crucial in ABA therapy. We provide training for parents and caregivers to continue therapy practices at home. This involvement helps ensure consistency in the application of behavioral strategies, enhancing the effectiveness of the therapy and promoting faster progress.

    What are the qualifications of your ABA therapists?

    Our ABA therapists are highly qualified and certified professionals. They hold certifications such as Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) and have extensive training and experience in providing effective ABA therapy. Each therapist undergoes rigorous ongoing training to stay current with the latest practices in behavior analysis.

    What kind of goals does ABA therapy set for children?

    ABA therapy goals are customized for each child and can include a wide range of skills — from improving communication and social interactions to increasing academic competencies and self-care skills. Goals are set in collaboration with families and are designed to be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART).

    How do you measure the effectiveness of ABA therapy?

    The effectiveness of ABA therapy is measured using continuous data collection and analysis. Therapists record the child’s progress during each session, tracking how well they are meeting their established goals. This data helps adjust interventions as needed to maximize effectiveness and ensure the child’s developmental progress.

    Where do you provide ABA services?

    We offer flexible ABA therapy services in a variety of settings to best meet the needs of families. Our services are available not only in our clinic but also at home, in schools, and within the community. This flexibility allows us to provide consistent and effective therapy in environments where the child is most comfortable, enhancing learning and behavior improvement.

    Can ABA therapy be integrated with other treatments my child is receiving?

    Yes, ABA therapy can be effectively integrated with other treatments and educational programs your child may be receiving. We collaborate with other professionals involved in your child’s care to create a cohesive treatment plan that addresses all aspects of their development. This integrated approach helps to ensure comprehensive support and maximizes the benefits of all therapeutic interventions.
