The science of Applied Behavior Analysis has developed from a large body of evidence-based research over the last several decades. Baer, Wolf, & Risley defined this science best in 1968: “Applied Behavior Analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior.”

Our ABA Therapy programs and treatment plans are based on assessment data, current research, and literature in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as well as on your child’s or young adult’s individual needs.
