ABA systematically applies defined, measured, and strategic interventions that assist your child to improve socially significant behaviors.
Socially significant behaviors include social skills, communication, adaptive living skills (like gross and fine motor skills, eating, toileting, dressing, and self-care), as well as other community-based skills.
ABA can help children with autism by:
- Teaching new skills
- Increasing positive behaviors
- Teaching self-control and self-monitoring so that positive behaviors are maintained through different scenarios and situations.
- Restricting the conditions that bring about challenging behaviors
- Reducing interfering behaviors that impair learning and home life
Goals + measurement = successful learning
Our board-certified behavior analysts work with parents to identify challenging behaviors, set realistic goals, create a program of targeted ABA therapies, and measure results.
Throughout the process, BCI works with parents to ensure that challenging behaviors decrease and positive behaviors are recognized and reinforced at home and in the community.
