So, who is Milestones?
Milestones specializes in teaching children who may be behind in their language, behavior, or social development. We use the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to make learning fun while helping students reach new heights. At Milestones, it is our mission to help each child reach his or her developmental Milestones.
Our team is comprised of multiple Licensed Behavior Analysts with outstanding backgrounds. LBAs provide frequent supervision of line technicians and are heavily involved with each students’ program. This leads to rapid analysis of data and increased rates of progress. Our line technicians are carefully chosen based on background, experience, and personality. Additionally, our Owner and Director, Melissa Raymond is a Licensed Behavior Analyst herself! Incorporating best practices into every aspect of Milestones is part of her personal mission.
ABA Therapy in a Nutshell
Behavior Analysis focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) uses these principles to bring about meaningful and positive change to behavior. The teaching methods of ABA have been well researched and shown to be effective in creating behavioral changes. Positive reinforcement, among other principles, are applied to create increases in desirable behavior (language, play, communication) and decreases in problematic behaviors (tantrums, aggression, self-stimulatory behaviors).
