ABA therapy is an evidence-based approach for creating significant positive behavior change. It focuses on the idea that our consequences affect how we learn as well as our future actions.
Research shows that high-quality, intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programs provides the best outcomes for children diagnosed with autism and other neurological and developmental disabilities. Through the use of the scientific method, ABA therapy focuses on (1) assessing behavior, (2) determining the reason for a behavior, (3) establishing scientifically-backed solutions for the behavior, (4) and implementing those solutions effectively.

Where can ABA Therapy Take Place
Cultivate offers ABA therapy at our learning centers, in homes, and during community outings. We strongly believe that therapy across various settings helps our clients learn and apply their skills in the moments and places that matter most.
With center-based therapy, children grow more independent in a safe, caring, and comfortable environment. At one of our clinic centers, children can play with peers, practice and learn social skills, communication, daily living skills, and school-readiness.
Children learn to appropriately engage and play with siblings during home-based therapy. Independence is gained by accomplishing potty training, daily hygiene skills, tasks, and completing household chores. If you are interested in home-based ABA therapy, visit our clinic pages in Illinois and Kentucky.
Out in the community, children learn to safely access spaces including grocery stores, doctor’s offices, hair cuts, and restaurants. Learn more about Cultivate Community Services.
