Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) Services
Autism Behavioural Services offers 1:1 and small group applied behaviour analysis services. Using the science of behaviour, we teach learners the way they learn. We carefully assess, plan, and measure progress on goals that are important for the learner and their family. Programs focus on building skills and can also address challenging or unsafe behaviour.Â Therapy sessions are implemented by qualified Instructor Therapists and supervised by Senior Therapists and Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBAÂ®). ABA programs can address goals across multiple domains and are individualized for each learner. Parents play an important role in selecting and guiding program goals. ABS offers services supervised by an approved supervisor under the Ontario Autism Program (OAP).Â
Examples of skills addressed through ABA therapy:
- School/classroom readiness skills
- Communication skills
- Social skills
- Play skills
- Academic skills (Direct Instruction)
- Life skills
- Toilet training
- Organization and learning Skills
- Behaviour reduction of interfering behaviour (e.g., physical aggression or elopement)
