Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
So what is ABA?
Decades of research show that ABA is effective in creating behavior change. At Milestones, we use effective strategies that have been empirically validated to make significant and meaningful changes in each child’s life. Each student has an individualized curriculum that is tailored to meet his or her specific needs.
Milestones specializes in teaching children who may be behind in their language, behavior, or social skills. We use the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to make learning fun while helping students reach new heights. Our line technicians are trained to work with children who display a variety of delays and challenging behaviors.
