What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is founded on decades of scientific investigation into the principles that govern learning and behavior. Practitioners of ABA apply these principles systematically in order to bring about meaningful, socially significant outcomes for their clients. While its potential applications are varied, ABA has been recognized most widely and consistently as a highly effective treatment for children on the autism spectrum, who can struggle to attain the milestones characteristic of typical development.
Parents of children with special needs often notice that basic skills like listening, attending, imitating, and communicating are lacking or slow to develop. Moreover, such children may also exhibit challenging behaviors that present a barrier to learning and instruction. While this can be disheartening for families to witness, there is much cause for hope. At Gateway, we recognize and value the potential of every client, and our team of expert ABA therapists works tirelessly to support your child in the reduction of challenging behaviors and the acquisition of foundational skills.
The clinical team at Gateway understands the goals and desires of each of our clients, and we pride ourselves on achieving results. To this end, we rigorously collect and analyze treatment data so that you are able to see exactly how much progress your child is making.
It is a highly individualized, client-centered approach that caters specifically to the issues your child is facing. We continually assess progress and use this information to inform treatment decisions, modifying our approach to provide support where it is most needed as your child continues to grow and develop.
While there are a variety of treatment options out there purporting to be effective, what sets ABA apart is the level of empirical support. Thousands of scientific research articles published over the past several decades have demonstrated the effectiveness of ABA interventions in addressing the many challenges faced by individuals on the autism spectrum, from acquiring the most basic language skills to navigating complex social environments.
This work has led to the recognition of ABA as the standard of care for those with special needs. When implemented and supervised by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, ABA therapy is considered the single most effective way for individuals to overcome the constraints of autism and achieve their goals.
