Applied Behavior Analysis
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) involves the careful study of an individual’s behavior and learning abilities to initiate a positive and meaningful change in their behavior and mental health. This highly customizable and adaptable treatment method is used to help individuals dealing with Autism and other mental health issues decrease inappropriate behaviors and increase socially appropriate behaviors by helping them improve and internalize important social skills like communication, getting along with others, and following social cues. This comprehensive approach has also been known to help improve conceptual skills, increase IQ, and help individuals integrate into more inclusive settings. Additionally, ABA is also helpful in reducing behaviors that can cause harm to an individual or interfere with their ability to learn.
Your ABA curriculum at Ascension Center is uniquely designed to address all of your individual needs, and skills, abilities, and concepts are broken down to their simplest components and taught in a structured setting until fluency is achieved.
