Is ABA Therapy Right For My Child?

February 23, 2022

For families considering the best program to foster improved social, communication, and learning skills for their child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, it’s important to understand that Applied Behavior Analysis has been widely recognized as the gold standard among treatments for decades. And the agency that is best equipped to guide your child through an ABA program is Achievement Behavior Care.

Applied Behavior Analysis employs a scientific approach to understanding and changing a child’s behavior in real-life situations at home, in school, and in community settings. Goals set by our Certified Behavior Analysts are focused on increasing constructive behaviors, including language, communication, learning, self-care, and social skills; and decreasing harmful ones such as aggression, self-injury, and repetitive behaviors. In intensive one-on-one sessions, as well as in group settings, positive reinforcement and other behavioral strategies are used to teach skills in carefully measured steps. Training is also provided to family members and caregivers to support the instruction their child is receiving.

There is no “one size fits all” approach to ABA therapy. It is a flexible treatment that can be adapted according to the needs of each child. This therapy has been recognized by the American Psychological Association and the U.S. Surgeon General for its success in guiding children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Syndrome to make measurable progress in navigating their day-to-day environments and interactions. It has been determined to be an evidence-based best practice treatment because its quality and effectiveness have held up to years of rigorous scientific testing 

At Achievement Behavior Care, our goal in ABA therapy is providing each child with skills that will lead to a more independent and fulfilling life in the present and future. Our caring and committed board-certified behavior analysts have the training, experience, and support to bring about meaningful, long term change in a child’s life. Please contact our office for details on enrolling your child in our program.
