What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the applied use of behavioral principles to everyday situations with the goal of either increasing or decreasing targeted behaviors.
 
Treating Autism Spectrum Disorder with ABA translates into a practical application for each child's specific needs. Academy ABA is focused on programming that is supported by outcome-based decision-making.

Programming for generalization takes into account the need for behaviors to occur across all environments, independently, and spontaneously.

Criteria are set to include various settings and stimuli and skill is not determined to be mastered unless and until the child demonstrates the independent ability to perform the skill across such environments. 

Our BCBA Supervisors are responsible for coordinating, communicating, and continually evaluating the effectiveness of functional assessments, behavioral evaluations, behavior plans, Parent Training, and other individual plans for clients on their caseload.

The BCBA is also a clinical teacher who educates, observes, assesses, and supervises all activities and service delivery of Registered Behavioral Technicians.

The "Other Stuff"

Through working with thousands of families over two decades we understand the value of an integrated therapy approach and have designed a complete program that delivers measurable results with as little stress as possible on you and your family.

Reinforcement – when we think of reinforcement, we naturally think of things that we like. Behaviorally speaking, reinforcement means only that a behavior, when followed by reinforcing stimuli, is more likely to increase over time. Thus, in an ABA program, each child’s reinforcement (items and timing and activities) is likely to vary widely.

All ABA programs should include a reinforcer assessment; and these assessments should be reviewed regularly over time to capture changes in the child’s preferences. Reinforcers should be built on items and activities that are motivating to a child. When behaviorists talk about reinforcement with families and other lay persons, it is often in the context of presenting desired items or activities to a student. This is termed “positive’ reinforcement. Another form of reinforcement is “negative’ reinforcement – that is, the removal of an undesired (aversive) stimulus – which, when removed consistently over time, the target behavior is likely to increase.
