When milestones are not being met at the same rate as peers or challenging behaviors are interfering with a child’s successful participation, A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) identifies the environmental variables and makes changes to affect behavior in a positive and systematic way. A BCBA follows the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to evaluate and develop a highly effective treatment plan that targets each child’s unique needs. You can expect that the ABA Therapy sessions utilize proven, research-based, teaching methods while maintaining an environment that is engaging, collaborative, and really fun!

Not Sure If Your Child Needs ABA Therapy?

Before bringing your child in to meet with one our BCBA therapists and receive an official assessment, we encourage you to check our Developmental Checklist and Autism Screening Tool to see how your child’s behaviors line up. Caregiver insight is an invaluable step in the ABA therapy evaluation process here at Handprints.
