Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the scientific study of behavior. The Process includes applying interventions based upon the principles of learning therory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree (Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968; Sulzer-Azaroff & Mayer, 1991). Behaviors are modified through changing environmental variables. Positive reinforcement strategies are used to increase desirable behaviors such as self-help, social, language, academic and imitation skills, among others. Positive reinforcement is also used to decrease maladaptive behaviors such as stereotypical behaviors or aggression. SKills are generalized to other environments, with other people and with different ways of responding.
Speech Language Pathology focuses on language communication. Our therapist work with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dyslexia and Phonological Disorders, among others. Evidence based interventions are used to create functional goals to improve speech and communication.
