Applied Behavior Analysis
What is ABA Therapy?
Applied Behavior Analysis is a therapy discipline that utilizes the scientific method to help understand and improve behavior. Through positive reinforcement, and evidence-based techniques, our ABA therapy program can benefit children with Autism and other related disorders.
Coastal’s behavioral services are deeply rooted in the science of Behavior Analysis. The behavioral procedures and interventions that we implement have undergone extensive research and are evidence-based. There are a multitude of evidence-based tactics in the science of Behavior Analysis that can be implemented through child-led strategies and caregiver driven approaches. Our Behavior Analysts are thoroughly trained to identify family needs and conduct functional behavior assessments with the most up to date assessment tools. Our clinical team strives to coordinate with other professionals and evaluate your child’s prerequisite skills to identify the most appropriate interventions to implement.
Our treatment is driven by accountability through the collection of data that measures your child’s responses to treatment. The data is evaluated by a qualified professional such as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst that is assigned to supervise regularly to ensure our process is effective and progressing efficiently.
We strive to collaborate with other professionals to ensure consistency across all areas of a child’s support team. Research has shown that multi-disciplinary and holistic programs lead to more efficacious outcomes for children. Our BCBAs and Speech-Language Pathologists work closely together to ensure our clients are progressing and meeting their individual and family goals.
