The Right Methodology: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
A proven approach. A history of successful outcomes.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the leading, research-based methodology proven to bring about positive, meaningful change in behavior in individuals with autism and learning disabilities. ABA has been endorsed by state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Surgeon General. At Interventions Unlimited, ABA programs are used to address the developmental areas of need such as communication, academic and social skills that enable successful, productive lives. In the last twenty years there has been a dramatic increase in the use of ABA for not only autism, but also a wide variety of other developmental, learning and behavioral difficulties in people of all ages.
Early intervention is key — studies show children with autism who start intensive, one-to-one ABA therapy between the ages of 2 and 5 experience significant improvements in all areas of functioning.
The key to ABA strategies is teaching complex skills in small steps, each building to a level of mastery before moving on to the next. Positive reinforcement in both the clinical and home setting motivates continual improvement. Progress is systematically tracked and evaluated to ensure that each new skill or behavior is successfully integrated into everyday life.
