What is ABA Therapy?

Applied behavior analysis, also known as ABA therapy, is an evidenced-based approach implemented to reduce undesired behaviors and increase and/or learn desired behaviors. In ABA therapy, interventions that have been tested and demonstrated to work, are used to assist the client in achieving normal functioning.

ABA therapy is used with children, adolescents and adults when certain behaviors don’t allow them to function at their developmental level. At D & M Behavioral Solutions, we our focused on children up until adolescence to start treatment. Length of treatment is dependent on many factors, however, the more the family is involved and consistent with treatment recommendations, the higher the probability of reaching the best results.

Behaviors and skill level of the client are first carefully assessed by a highly trained professional. Assessments and behavior plans are individualized in order to best fit the client’s needs. Skills needed to be learned will be reduced to smaller steps in order to ease the learning process. Each family will be thoroughly explained as to how the services will be provided.

Benefits of ABA therapy?

An important goal of ABA therapy is to make a socially meaningful change in the life of the client and family receiving the treatment. A treatment team including a behavioral analyst and a behavior technician will be working alongside the family to equip them with the tools necessary to handle the most difficult behaviors and assist the client in learning those behaviors needed to live a more functional life. This approach to therapy is one of the most effective as it is evidenced based.
