What is ABA Therapy ?

What is ABA Therapy?

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is an intensive clinical behavioral therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA is an evidence-based treatment, designed to decrease behaviors that limit opportunity, and increase behaviors that increase access to reinforcement. Therapy programs involve a 1:1 ratio, with one behavior therapist working with one learner on goals specifically designed for that learner.

The U.S. Surgeon General and the American Psychological Association (APA) have endorsed ABA for the treatment of behaviors related to ASD, and ABA therapy is now covered by most insurance companies – including MassHealth.

Telehealth/Hybrid Services

Telehealth means your supervising BCBA will provide clinical supervision using a combination of virtual and direct oversight, reducing health and safety risks for you and your loved ones while maintaining quality of care.
Your direct therapist will continue to work with 1:1 with your learner in-person. Using a secure and HIPAA-compliant platform, clinicians can conduct assessments and observations, and participate in family collaboration trainings and other stakeholder meeting. We work with you to establish an individualized schedule.

Family Collaboration Training

Partnering with families is an essential part of ABA therapy. All of our programs include family collaboration training.

The goal of this training is to increase health literacy, empower families to be able to address challenging behaviors, and provide them with the tools to teach learners new skills. The parent training commitment is individualized, and parent input is used to develop goals that will have the greatest impact on the family’s overall quality of life.
