Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
FOCUS Center was approved as an agency to provide comprehensive functional assessment as well as intervention for children with primary diagnosis of ASD (Autism)
We provide ABA for children who may exhibit behavioral difficulties as part of their diagnosis, such as children with Autism.
Why Behavior Therapy? ABA is an evidence-based treatment, also known as behavioral modification, which helps change potentially self-destructing behaviors and replaces them with positive ones. The therapy also helps your child cope with challenging situations at home or in a social context.
Applied behavioral analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based therapy that uses techniques to increase positive or useful behaviors and reduce inappropriate or harmful ones.
FOCUS therapists use an customized approach adapted to meet each child’s skills, needs, interests, and goals. Home-based services are provided directly in the home and community locations, emphasizing parental support and social integration, and tools to implement the therapeutic experience. FOCUS also treats children in school and at our center, enabling a stronger emphasis on socialization. FOCUS believes in a multidisciplinary approach, embracing each child’s needs from all angles, including sensory, motor, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral.
