Applied Behavior Analysis

Bartlett Regional Hospital is currently providing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to children aged 2-21 diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based behavioral therapy that focuses on social and functional skill development and helps reduce maladaptive behaviors. This type of behavioral therapy involves direct support 1:1 by board certified ABA technicians who are overseen by a Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). The goal of ABA is to help change the natural learning environment to increase independence and decrease barriers that impact quality of life for each child. ABA therapy targets teaching specific skills in these developmental areas:

  • Functional and social communication
  • Social relationships and peer interactions
  • Conversation skills
  • Independent and Social Play
  • Independence in self-help routines
  • Emotional regulation
  • Coping strategies
  • Leisure activities
  • Reduction of Maladaptive behaviors

Due to the growing need in our community, ABA therapy will include home, school, and community-based therapy for patients to help with teaching skills across all environments that are significant to each individual child. Families of patients will be given parent training, treatment progress monitoring, and functional behavior assessments as part of their ABA therapy. Additionally, Bartlett Regional Hospital will be creating a clinic that will be dedicated to pediatric outpatient ABA to enable future services to expand to include clinic-based therapy. We look forward to working with your child!
