Applied Behavior Analysis
Developmental Improvements uses the strategies of Applied Behavior Analysis, which has been scientifically proven to deliver results, and incorporates the latest research findings into our work.
Our ABA therapy program is designed to help children develop a number of skill sets while at the same time reducing their engagement in problematic behaviors. We begin by expanding receptive and expressive vocabulary evenly across all major parts of speech so that needs and wants can be communicated. Conversational skills, generalization, and spontaneity are then targeted.
These techniques are shared with caregivers to implement at home.
Treatment begins with an assessment, the purpose of which is to determine which skill set the child already possesses, and where the child has deficits. The licensed specialist then develops an individualized ABA program aimed at increasing the child’s skills in many areas as well as decreasing problematic behaviors.
Developmental Improvements provides intensive ABA therapy to clients in center-based, in-home and school settings. All programs are developed and overseen by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) and implemented by our Behavior Technicians.
