Overview of ABA Therapy
What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy?
ABA therapy is evidence-based interventions that help individuals learn important skills and reduce challenging behaviors. ABA is most commonly associated with autism, but research supports its effectiveness across different developmental disabilities or behavioral health needs.

Which one is right for my child?
Both comprehensive and focused ABA therapy services have their advantages and are chosen based on the individual’s needs, goals, and available resources. The decision between the two approaches depends on the assessment of needs and desired outcomes of the intervention. However, research has consistently shown that comprehensive ABA therapy tends to yield the greatest long-term benefits for individuals receiving treatment. The intensive and comprehensive nature of this approach, which includes targeting multiple skill areas and providing a higher number of therapy hours per week, contributes to its effectiveness.
Many studies have demonstrated that individuals who undergo comprehensive ABA therapy for an extended period experience significant and lasting improvements in various domains of functioning. These improvements often extend beyond the duration of therapy, leading to enhanced independence, better quality of life, and increased success in academic and social settings.
