Clinic-based Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Clinic-Based Applied Behavior Analysis Services

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based practice grounded in the science of learning. Research suggests the efficacy of ABA in decreasing challenging behavior, as well as increasing communication, socialization and independent learning skills in children.

Our ABA clinic services begin with a thorough assessment of skills across domains (e.g., communication, imitation, social skills, etc.), after which an individualized program plan is developed. Treatment begins in the clinic setting, utilizing multiple practitioners to accomplish a combination of one-on-one, group, and parent sessions. Credentialed providers provide direct instruction several hours per week utilizing the methods of applied behavior analysis. Ongoing programming is monitored and driven by the client’s progress, as measured by daily data and monthly evaluations/reporting, with the goal of generalizing skills across people and environments (i.e., home, school, and other relevant settings). Successful ABA therapy requires a team commitment, with an individual’s plan often involving anywhere from 5 to 40 hours of treatment per week.

Currently, our clinics are located in Utica and Syracuse, and accept a variety of insurances. Referred children must have a diagnosis of Autism to qualify for insurance-based services. Private pay and out-of-network options are an option as well.

"There are many things we must learn in this lifetime; nothing compares with learning from a child with an autism spectrum disorder. They let us know exactly who we are. It is our job to listen."
