What is Applied Behavior Analysis?
ABA isn’t a bunch of stodgy clinicians in white lab coats scribbling furiously on legal pads. Within Ready, Set, Connect! ABA is, simply, a treatment approach that is highly customized to the child, built to encourage tasks that lead to skill development.
Every Ready, Set, Connect! child is given an extremely thorough assessment at the start, using gold-standard assessment tools, VB-MAPP (Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program) and AFLS (Assessment of Functional Living Skills). These are incredibly detailed assessments, measuring individual skill levels. From that, our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) create learning objectives, tailored specifically to each child. Throughout a child’s day at Ready, Set, Connect! our one-on-one ABA therapists work toward each learning objective. There can be over 20 learning objectives in play at any one time!
In real-time, our therapists are inputting data into our web-based metrics tool and working in conjunction with our BCBAs, challenges are identified, objectives are updated, and successes are built upon. Oh—and all of this clinical expertise is happening while your child is having a great time playing with friends, climbing a jungle gym, or enjoying a story at circle time!
