Applied behavior analysis is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior that aims to decrease challenging behavior and target socially significant behaviors for each individual. ABA is a validated approach that uses evidence-based interventions and data collection in order to make treatment decisions based on your child’s individual progress. An evaluation by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) is completed to determine the treatment plan and the treatment setting using a family-centered approach. Our team builds an individualized plan for each child, outlining goals and addressing challenging behavior. Easterseals’ ABA therapy can be provided in a variety of settings including 1:1, small group, classroom-like environment, in the home when appropriate, or a combination of all these settings.
