ABA Therapy

ABA Therapy at ABS

Alternative Behavior Strategies specializes in the use of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to help teach new skills and reduce problematic behavior in children with developmental difficulties, including children on the autism spectrum.  We use a variety of ABA strategies that are researched-based to provide the best possible care for your developing child. While these strategies are individually applied to each specific child, they all work to increase your child’s motivation to engage in appropriate behaviors and reduce the motivation for inappropriate behaviors.

ABA depends on basic principles of behavior modification to effect meaningful changes in the way your child relates with their family, peers, community, and their environment. Known at Alternative Behavior Strategies as “consultants,” behavior analysts apply their knowledge and specialized training to evaluate how your child learns from their environment.


They determine why your child engages in certain behaviors and will work with you to design a plan to help your child meet their goals. Your consultant will supervise a team of therapists who will work one-on-one with your child to implement that plan, aiming to reduce inappropriate behaviors (hitting, tantrums, screaming, etc.) by teaching more appropriate behaviors to replace them, such as: communication, play, and social skills.

We provide ABA therapy services to the following services areas: 

California: San Diego, Rancho Cucamonga, and Ventura County

North Carolina: Charlotte, Concord, and Winston-Salem

UtahSalt Lake City, Layton, and Orem

Reporting & Monitoring Progress

ABA is a data-driven therapy; clinicians depend on real-time measurement of behavior to guide intervention decisions.  ABS uses a state of the art data tracking program that instantly creates readable graphs that help monitor and communicate performance. Technicians track data consistently throughout the session to ensure that they understand how a child is responding to any given intervention.
