Applied Behavior Analysis Services
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the study of understanding behaviors and is widely recognized as an effective therapy for individuals of all ages on the autism spectrum. Through ABA therapy at Lifeworks, individuals can experience meaningful improvements in socially significant areas of their lives, such as communication, daily living skills, social skills, leisure skills, vocational skills, community involvement, and academics. With a large focus on proactive interventions and reinforcement, Lifeworks’ ABA therapy teaches new skills to individuals that help to decrease challenging behaviors and increase positive, socially appropriate behaviors.
Lifeworks offers comprehensive ABA therapy, which involves treatment of multiple affected developmental domains such as communication, cognitive, emotional, social and adaptive functioning. Treatment takes place during ABA sessions within the home to work on building new skill sets, decreasing challenging behaviors, as well as increasing targeted behaviors. A Behavior Therapist (RBT) will work one-on-one with the client and the family as well as a supervising Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
Lifeworks also offers focused ABA therapy, which is a treatment that is provided to a client on a limited number of behavioral targets. Those targets may include reducing challenging behaviors or developing and strengthening targeted behaviors in order to enhance the clients safety, health, and overall function. A Behavior Therapist (RBT) will work one-on-one with the client and the family, as well as a supervising Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).
A vital part of ABA therapy is the involvement of the family and caregivers. As a part of the individual’s treatment, the supervising Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will support the family/caregivers with achieving identified goals that will help the individual to generalize skills outside of therapy and reach their greatest potential.
ABA Services at Lifeworks are provided by Bachelor’s and Master’s level professionals. All clinical oversight and coordination are performed by licensed and certified staff members in accordance with best-practice standards and state regulations.
