We often find ourselves describing our programming as “gentle ABA.” We believe that ABA should be delivered through a lens of compassion and programming should be dignity focused. We adhere to a model that is, first and foremost, kind and empowering.
We understand that behavior does not occur in a vacuum, rather behavior occurs within a social paradigm, where each member brings their own learning/behavioral/emotional history that needs to be understood and validated. We prioritize relationship building and connection as the foundation of our programs. We know that safe, predictable, and secure attachment is pivotal to meaningful progress with any child.
We also rely on gentler behavior change approaches like shaping, skill building and behavior regulation strategies. We understand that we cannot force or coerce behavior change, but we can increase choice, share control, support self-advocacy and provide coaching to allow each individual to be an active decision-maker in their program.
ABA can effectively support the most complex, dynamic, and severe behavioral presentations, while continuing to honor each individual with compassion and kindness.
