What is ABA Therapy?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is a proven evidence-based, best practice model used to provide effective treatment to individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as well as other behavioral and developmental disabilities.
The utilization of ABA therapy has gained significant recognition in the medical community and has been integrated into numerous educational institutions and treatment centers. This form of therapy seeks to promote beneficial behaviors while minimizing undesirable ones, with the ultimate goal of enhancing a range of skills. There is a consistent evaluation of the child's progress, allowing for ongoing monitoring and assessment.

Consequently, ABA can lead to significant advancements in communication, social relationships, self-care, and academic performance.
