What is ABA therapy? 

Applied Behavior Analysis is an evidence based practice based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA therapy can be used to teach developmental skills including language and communication, social play, academics and imitation. ABA therapy is an effective practice in the treatment of problem behavior and includes analyzing data to determine the function and identify replacement behavior. Here at SBLS we use various applications of ABA to build on the child's strengths and further develop their skills. Some of the approaches utilized are Discrete Trial Training (DTT),Natural Environment Teaching (NET), Verbal Behavior (VB), Behavioral Skills Training (BST) and more.
