Autism & ABA Therapy Service in The Northern Suburbs

ABA, Applied Behavior Analysis, is the discipline that studies human behavior and aims to improve social behavior by implementing the fundamental techniques of the learning theory. Applied Behavior Analysis therapy builds on the principles of learning. This approached is often used to help individuals diagnosed with Autism develop their communication, social and learning skills. By providing in-home ABA therapy in The Northern Suburbs, our team creates a customized, personal approach for each child we work with, in the comfort of their natural environment and including their parents, family and at-home care network. By working in-home, our professionals can delve into the details and possible trigger that might be setting off certain problematic behaviors. We work to help the child find more positive ways of reacting to triggers and helping them replace the negative behaviors with positive tactics. Analysts evaluate your child via assessments and help them set specific goals to work towards. We’ll help your child develop new skills, advance previously learned skills, and decrease problems in social behavior.

Northern Suburbs-Based ABA Therapy

Northern Suburbs-Based ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA therapy is conducted by a Northern Suburb based Behavior therapist that works with the supervision of a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA). Before therapy begins, your BCBA seeks the root of understanding the learning, emotional challenges or environmental triggers that underlie problematic behaviors. With the final observation from this assessment, a care plan is created.
