Understanding ABA

It takes a village to raise a child and the ABA approach is no exception to the rule. Fast and effective therapy is dependent on consistency among all caregivers. A priceless gift to your child’s therapy is a personal education of the methods of their therapy. Families with a strong grasp of the principles and teaching strategies of ABA Therapy, who are willing to incorporate teaching into their everyday interactions with their children will see additional meaningful changes in their child’s life.
