What is ABA therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is a type of therapy for children with autism that aids in the development of new skills and decreases socially significant problem behaviors. Our environment influences our behaviors and there is always a reason for what we do. ABA can be used in a variety of settings and with a variety of people. At Northwoods Learning Center, ABA looks fun and natural. The use of reinforcement is crucial to the process and allows us to make learning fun for your child. 

What does ABA therapy look like at Northwoods Learning Center?

  • A qualified and trained Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will oversee your child's therapy program. 
  • After a detailed assessment process, the BCBA will create an individualized treatment plan. Goals will include things such as communication, social skills, play, activities of daily living, motor development, and academic skills. Based off the assessment, the BCBA will recommend somewhere between 10-40 hours of ABA therapy a week. 
  • Highly trained behavior technicians will work with your child on these goals through detailed instruction plans that break the skills down into smaller sets. Your child will work on basic skill sets to start and will build up to more complex skill sets with each skill set building off of the previous one. 
  • The behavior technicians will continually collect data on your child's treatment plan goals and the BCBA will monitor progress and determine what skill sets are improving and which therapy goals need to be modified in order to make sure your child is achieving their goals.  
  • Regular meetings will take place with parents to review progress and to insure skill sets are being generalized to other environments.
