Affordable Home-Based ABA Treatment Services in the Bay Area.
What is ABA Treatment?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, has been recognized globally as one of the best strategies to treat children with autism. ABA is the most researched intervention for autism spectrum disorders that has been used by practitioners for over 50 years. It is a highly structured, evidence-based approach that helps in improving communication, academics, self-care, social and basic living skills, and can also help with reducing undesirable behaviors. It is highly recommended that if a child has shown signs of autism, it’s advisable to schedule an appointment with an certified ABA therapist sooner, rather than later.

We use tools such as the VB-MAPP (Sundberg) and EFL (McGreevy) that helps to identify specific language objectives, and give us the means to create a personalized curriculum for your child.
