Applied Behavior Analysis and Lone Star
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence based approach to teaching new skills, increasing appropriate behaviors and decreasing problematic behaviors. ABA has been demonstrated to significantly reduce deficits characteristic of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). ABA therapy uses the science of behavior to identify procedures that are likely to be effective for specific individuals. Every child and adult learns in different ways and is motivated by different things. ABA evaluates the teaching approaches and motivating items and activities to ensure that the most effective strategies are used with each individual. Similarly, careful analysis of behavior, allows ABA providers to identify quickly when treatment approaches are not effective for an individual so that changes can be made quickly to ensure ineffective strategies are not continued. Our ABA interventions at Lonestar are specifically tailored to each individual that we serve. We use evidence-based procedures so that we can make lasting progress for our client's and help their families grow and learn together to achieve the highest level of independence and success.
