Moving beyond the BASICS through
Behavioral, Academic, & Social Skills
Intervention, Creation, & Support
B.A.S.I.C.S. ABA Therapy, LLC is designed around the core belief that ABA is an overall philosophy and outlook on behavior. We believe that people engage in behaviors in order to have a need met. It is our job to determine what that need is and either continue to reinforce the behavior or teach the client an effective way to have that need met. We believe that positive interventions are almost always effective in changing behavior.
