ABA Helpful Tips

What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a scientific approach to understanding different behavior. ABA therapy carefully considers history and the environment in order to improve or change specific behaviors to help children and families reach their potential. Easterseals is proud to have Board Certified Analysts supporting our Early Childhood Centers and providing one on one, focused ABA therapy on site and Behavioral Consultation services.
