Why Choose Us
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a form of therapy that uses the principles of learning to teach important and meaningful social behaviours to improve the quality of life of your child and family. Therapists have used ABA since the 1960s, and ABA continues to have the strongest evidence to help children with autism learn today.
ABA therapy can help improve the following areas:
- Language and communication skills
- Focus, social skills, memory, and academics
- Fine and gross motor skills, and personal independence, including feeding, dressing and toileting
- Challenging behaviours
Many young children who receive intensive interventions based on ABA principles make gains in language, academic performance, and adaptive behaviour. Their outcomes have been significantly better than those of children receiving other treatments or no treatment. Across age and skill levels, ABA has over 50 years of evidence of success.
Our highly individualized programs are supervised by our Board Certified Behavior Analysts® (BCBA®). BCBA is graduate-level certification in behaviour analysis. Our supervising staff undergo continuous extensive training and examination to provide the most up-to-date clinical form of therapy for children with autism.
Children and youth who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by a qualified professional are eligible for the Ontario Autism Program (OAP) under the Ontario Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (MCCSS).
