Effective ABA programs tailored for individuals with autism recognize that there is no universal approach. ABA should not be perceived as a standardized series of exercises but rather as a customized plan designed to address the specific requirements of each learner.

A BCBA (Board Certified Behavioral Analyst) designs and oversees a personalized ABA program for each child assessing skills and preferences to create specific treatment goals, including communication, social skills, self-care, play, motor skills, and academics. The program breaks down these goals into small, sequential steps, analyzed and modified regularly through data collection. Family involvement is very important to us, therefore regular meetings with family and staff ensure ongoing progress review and adjustments to teaching plans and goals.
