A referral or prescription is needed before obtaining certain services.

What is Applied Behavior Analysis?

ABA applies behavioral principles, such as positive re-enforcement, to everyday situations. The goal is to increase or decrease targeted behaviors. ABA can help develop different skills, such as speech, self-help or and play skills.  It can also help to decrease behaviors such as aggression or self-injury.
