Autism Diagnostic Services and ABA Therapy Clinic
Applied Behavior Analysis is a scientific approach to improving and understanding behavior that is socially important.
The practice of ABA involves observation by a Behavior Analyst, who will develop individualized treatment plans for each client based on the principles of behavior. Most learners receive 20-40 hours of treatment weekly, working on a comprehensive range of skills.
At the Center for Autism, we seek to understand the function of each of our client’s behaviors in order to create treatment plans that will focus on improving those behaviors that are socially significant and decreasing any behaviors that might interfere with the learning process.
The BACB® stands for the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. The Behavior Analyst Certification Board®, Inc. (BACB®) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1998 to meet professional credentialing needs identified by behavior analysts, governments, and consumers of behavior analysis services. The BACB® adheres to international standards for boards that grant professional credentials. Behavioral therapy should always be led by clinicians who are board certified. For more information, please refer to the BACB® website.
