Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) / Autism Therapy is an evidence-based treatment approach that is designed to increase more appropriate behaviors, decrease negative behaviors, and improve independence across every aspect of childhood development. ABA helps children strengthen foundational skills in their development.
This in turn helps to progress with improved independence for greater successes throughout childhood, as they develop and evolve in relationships with others. It is a data-driven therapy practice that utilizes positive behavioral interventions to reinforce desired behaviors, exemplifying good interactions to get more good interactions. Within Chicago Therapeutic Children’s Academy, our ABA therapists incorporate behavioral, play based and social based interventions both within and out of the class, working one on one with therapists. Every ABA session is with an individual therapist, working one to one with your child. Your child works with the same team members, building special relationships that are forged in the perfect balance of work and play!
Our Board Certified Behavior Analysts constantly measure outcomes, work closely with families to coach and train parents on programs that work, and customize programs to address each child’s needs, while advancing them quickly as they surpass each goal. The entire therapeutic classroom staff is trained and regularly updated on each child’s behavioral goals, ranging from potty training, to language, to social interactions. Having a consistent, cohesive and collaborative team makes for a dynamic and results-driven group of professionals dedicated to each child’s independence and therapeutic educational gains.
