ABA intervention refers to the process of applying behavior analysis. This process involves an ABA therapist observing their patients to learn about their unique strengths, challenges, and interests. Then, working with the patient, their family, and our ABA team, the therapist will set goals for the therapy – like improving communication skills, making new friends, or feeling more comfortable in different situations.
Next, the therapist breaks the goals into smaller, achievable steps. This is a critical aspect of ABA because as individuals master each step, they build confidence along the way. If they are learning to communicate, for instance, the ABA therapist might start by helping them say simple words, and as the patient becomes more comfortable, they’ll gradually learn to express themselves in more complex ways.
Additionally, Learning ARTS has created its own stimulus application to support ABA interventions. Our stimulus app facilitates functional communication training through introductions to language (tacts and mands), conversational skills, daily schedules, icon exchange systems, and token economies.
