How Does ABA Therapy Work?

The two-tier team of a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) and a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) works to increase language and communication skills, improve attention, focus, and social skills and decrease problem behaviors.

ABA involves a one-to-one customized approach for behavior modification. This can include a focused or comprehensive approach based on the child’s specific medical needs.  The team will work with the child on a daily basis to increase functional skills and reduce challenging behaviors.

ABA therapy also involves caregiver coaching with the goal of understanding behaviors and gaining the knowledge needed to assist the child in reaching his/her full potential. The BCBA will provide caregiver coaching and supervise the RBT services on a weekly basis.
