Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a medical service that includes individualized treatment specific to the behaviors an individual displays. ABA is the science of measuring the contexts in which behaviors occur for the purpose of analysis and individualized treatment to change behavior in meaningful ways. All treatment interventions, protocols, and techniques are grounded in empirically supported treatment procedures within the field of ABA services. Only procedures found to be effective in the most current research will be implemented throughout the course of treatment at Light of Hope's ABA therapy center.
At Light of Hope, we utilize the core principles of compassionate care ABA services. In short, we use empirically supported ABA therapy interventions to change targeted behaviors by including analysis and goals for each behavior and by teaching and reinforcing appropriate behaviors that improve the quality of an individual's life. This approach allows us to use listening, understanding, and acting during treatment in a way that is systematic, scientific, and effective. ABA therapy is a compassionate practice by design, as reinforcement is a primary principal of the field and is the most effective way to lead to meaningful and long-term behavior change. Individuals learn best when they are happy, relaxed, and engaged in learning, and that is what we aim to achieve each and every day at Light of Hope.
ABA therapy is comprised of a multiple-level, tiered system of individuals who make up a behavior analysis treatment team. Those individuals include:
At Light of Hope we are proud to have additional individuals who work in tandem with the treatment team:
Direct ABA therapy sessions are intensive treatment sessions where your child has an RBT work 1:1 with them. The RBT implements the treatment goals from the Individualized Treatment Plan using intervention, techniques, and protocols designed by a BCBA.
Training provided to the parents or caregivers of an individual on interventions, strategies, and protocols utilized during ABA therapy sessions for the purpose of generalization of skills across environments.
Group ABA therapy sessions that are designed to target the teaching of social skills in a group setting. Group sessions are conducted by a lead instructor, and groups may be comprised of 2-8 peers.
Group parent training ABA therapy sessions consist of a group of parents/ caregivers who attend scheduled topic trainings. Parents and caregivers will then set actions plans, implement strategies, and take data in the home setting.
