What is ABA therapy?
Learn about ABA at Learn to Grow
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the systematic evaluation and application of evidence-based interventions aimed at producing changes in behavior. ABA programs are used to improve communication and social abilities, decrease problem behaviors, and help teach other necessary skills. ABA is a highly individualized method of intervention that is systematic, supportive of learning, and flexible in how things are taught.
Through observation and strong relationships behavior analysts work diligently to find what motivates young learners to learn in a fun and positive way. We understand that all learners are unique and that the best learning happens when learners are having fun.
