The Impact of ABA Therapy

Transforming Lives with ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is a powerful tool in enhancing the quality of life for individuals with diverse abilities. At Thomas Park MD & Associates, we leverage ABA to empower these individuals, helping them achieve their fullest potential. Our dedicated approach not only supports the individuals but also provides their families with the tools and knowledge needed to maintain progress outside of therapy sessions.

What is ABA Therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy is an evidence-based and intensive behavioral support program individualized to your child’s needs. ABA uses developmental assessments to measure areas that are barriers to learning and independent living skills.

At Thomas Park, we create individualized plans to address these barriers found in the evaluation (both developmentally and behaviorally) for your child. Behavior plans are set to address behaviors that are barriers to learning, and the child is taught appropriate replacement behaviors. We work with the families, school personal, and others who may be involved with your child’s life to ensure the most collaborative and individualized approach to your child’s therapy.
