Capable Kids, LLC provides applied behavior analysis to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. The program is designed to provide intensive instruction to address comprehensive learning needs, as well as provide students with facilitated social interactions with peers. Instructors with extensive training in applied behavior provide one-on-one intervention with opportunities for small group instruction.

What is ABA?

Applied behavior analysis uses systematic principles of behavior to create learning opportunities that will increase desirable behaviors, such as communication skills or pro-social behavior, while decreasing undesirable ones. Ongoing assessment and data collection drive decision making. Through decades of research, the techniques of applied behavior analysis have been shown to be effective in altering the developmental outcomes for many young children with autism.
