ABA is an empirically based therapy placing emphasis on functional skills that are meaningful in day-to-day life. It utilizes reinforcement in structured and natural environments to help individuals learn new skills. Skills that are addressed range from simple to complex and are individualized to meet the needs of the individual participating in the program. Goals are broken down into smaller measurable units using discrete trial, pivotal response training, incidental teaching, and natural environment teaching to foster pre-academic and academic skills, social skills, self-care skills, language and communication.
