Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

The purpose of In Home and Clinical ABA is to identify skill deficits in areas such as, communication, socialization, and functional life skills that may contribute to challenging behaviors.

We then develop individualized treatment plans that focus on teaching skills and functional communication based on evidence-based practices. This might include altering the environment, teaching replacement behaviors, and reinforcing new behaviors. 

We offer ABA throughout Virginia:

  • Lynchburg
  • Danville
  • Richmond
  • Farmville
  • Roanoke
