What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science of understanding and changing behavior. It helps us determine how, why, and when a behavior occurs. The goal of ABA is to teach and reinforce helpful, socially-appropriate behaviors while decreasing and/or replacing harmful ones. Studies show that ABA therapy improves the quality of life and independence of neurodiverse individuals.

At BAS, we work with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, including - but not limited to - autism, ADHD, and oppositional defiant disorder (ODD). Each client has an individualized plan. All of our therapists are BACB-certified. We provide services in our Largo clinic, and in homes, schools, and in the community.
