ABA Learning Center


The focus of the program is on the observable behavior of the individual with an emphasis on precise measurement to demonstrate clinical control of the interventions.



Evaluation of the efficacy of the program is determined by those who must ultimately deal with the behavior changed by the interventions. Parents will answer the practical question; “Did the behavior change as much as it needed to change?



Interventions are implemented with such sufficiency that the desired behavior change occurs in relevant settings other than the intervention site, and in such a way as to ensure the durability of behavior change over time and with people other than those involved in the intervention.



Interventions address not only targeted maladaptive behaviors, but emphasize pro-social adaptive replacement skills that serve the function previously fulfilled by the target behavior. Skills are developed to address behavioral deficits, and discrimination training establishes stimulus control of appropriate behaviors.



The principles of behavior analysis are consistent from individual to individual, but the specific procedures often are not. Interventions are tailored to the specific and needs of the individual for whom the program is designed.



All interventions consist of procedures that build skills and teach replacement behaviors via non-aversive techniques. Punishment does not teach, rather it only suppresses behavior. Effective interventions are best accomplished via procedures emphasizing positive reinforcement, discrimination training, and shaping of new skills via successive approximations. Ignoring undesirable behavior will be part of an intervention, but with the purpose of building new skills via differential reinforcement to teach learners a better way to achieve desired results.


ABA Learning Center

We offer an after school program for children with special needs including: autism, Asperger's syndrome, emotional disturbance, and behavior challenges.

The ABA Learning Center was established in response to decades of parents asking “Where can I find an after-school program for my special needs child?” The paucity of options, often limited by a child’s behavior challenges, leaves parents frustrated and exhausted. Now, at last, a program exists that caters to parents needs with a zero-exclusion policy for school age children with special needs.

We would be privileged to be included in the growth and development of your child.

We offer programs for children with:

  • Autism
  • Developmental Delay
  • Intellectual Disability (Mental Retardation)
  • Down's Syndrome
  • Asperger's Syndrome
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Learning Disability
