BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION & SUPPORT
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science of applying experimentally derived principles of behavior to improve socially significant behavior.
Applied: ABA takes what we know about behavior and uses it to bring about real-world, meaningful change.
Behavior: Behaviors are defined in observable and measurable terms in order to assess and monitor change.
Analysis: Behaviors are analyzed within the home, school, or community environment to help determine what factors are influencing the behavior.
In general, ABA involves rewarding individuals for appropriate behavior and not rewarding their problem behaviors.
Parents, teachers, classroom aides, therapists, and others can learn how to use these practical ABA methods to help change lives for the better.

Early Intervention ABA Services
Early Intervention ABA looks at producing changes across global areas of functioning including cognitive, adaptive, social, and emotional domains.
Early Intervention ranges from highly structured lessons to a more naturalistic programming that can look like play, chore completion, or simple conversation.
Early intervention ABA services are recommended for children who have just recently received the diagnosis and children generally between the ages of 0-7 years of age.
