Autism and Behavioral Resource Center


Studies show that early diagnosis with treatment is connected with dramatic success.

What is Applied Behavior Analysis?

Through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) it is believed that behavior can be changed. We do this by teaching new skills, changing the setting, and replacing current behaviors with new behaviors. The purpose of ABA is to teach in a way the learner can remember the skill and perform the skill on their own. Our goal is to help learners to do things on their own.
