What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science of behavior. ABA is the process of systematically applying evidence-based principles of the learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree (Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968). ABA provides scientifically-supported methods for increasing positive behaviors such (e.g., language, self help skills) and for reducing problem behavior (e.g., tantrums) for individuals with Autism and related disorders.

As Clinical Director and Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), I am fortunate to have had over 10 years of experience providing long-lasting and socially significant behavioral changes to individuals with Autism and related disorders. This experience affords me the skills necessary to continuously provide effective and ethical ABA therapy in the following ways: conducting assessments, providing parent training, providing RBT training/supervision, developing comprehensive behavior treatment plans, and reporting on the progression of each program.
Our qualified clinical team consists of individuals who have all earned certification as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) from the Behavior Analysis Certification Board. All RBTs receive ongoing and direct supervision from a BCBA.
