What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a form of therapy that teaches important and meaningful social behaviours to improve the quality of life of your child and family. Since the 1960s ABA continues to have the strongest evidence to help children and adults of all skills levels.
Surrey Place therapists use ABA therapy to help improve:
- Language and communication skills
- Focus, social skills, memory, and academics
- Fine motor skills, gross motor skills and personal independence
- Challenging behaviours
ABA outcomes have been significantly better than those of children in receiving other treatments, or no treatment. These treatments are evidence-based, data-driven, scientifically validated, and conceptually systematic. Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) oversee ABA program design and implementation and ensure that ABA is effective.
