wHAT aba IS AND wHAT IT IS NOT
ABA therapy is not a toolbox. ABA therapy is the interaction between the client’s behavior and the behavior of the therapist (their immediate environment). ABA is not forced compliance. In order to inspire sustainable change, children on the spectrum should not be made to feel that they are problems that must be dealt with. They should be allowed to grow into their individuality without shame or apology. At the same time, there are skills that everyone needs to help ease the transition into mainstream society, and we firmly believe that children with special needs are capable of learning these skills through scientifically-based strategies and passionate dedication on our and the family's part. We invite you to experience the sustainable change that BehaviorWorks develops with our families.
