Your Questions Answered

What can I expect during a treatment session? Initially, one of our Behavior Analysts will conduct a thorough behavioral interview with your child in order to develop a thorough understanding of their present behavior and their individual strengths and weaknesses.


The BCBA clinician will use behavioral data gathered during the interview to determine appropriate treatment goals and intervention strategies. Highly-trained Registered Behavioral Technicians will then work one-on-one with your child for a prescribed number of hours each week and implement this tailored treatment plan under the supervision of a BCBA clinician. 

How will my child benefit from ABA Therapy in AIA STEM Preparatory Academy? 

Our behavioral team will work 1-on-1 with your child on replacing dysfunctional or harmful behavior with more effective, functional action. ​Practicing academic readiness is a priority in our program. Your child will learn to attend to instructions, respond to their names, follow directions, comply with non-preferred tasks or demands, develop critical executive functions, & build essential life skills.
