ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis is an evidenced based therapy on the science of learning and behavior.

ABA is considered an evidence-based best practice treatment by the US Surgeon General and by the American Psychological Association. ABA therapy involves treatment for changing behavior. Maladaptive or undesirable behavior can be decreased through ABA techniques. Additionally, positive or desirable behavior can be increased through positive reinforcement, a central strategy of ABA. This treatment can focus on improving specific behaviors, such as social skills, communication, reading, and academics as well as adaptive learning skills, such as fine motor dexterity, hygiene, grooming, domestic capabilities, punctuality, and job competence. Rise Counseling & Wellness is committed to providing quality theraputic services to enhance the lives of clients and their families.
