The work we do focuses on improving learning skills, communication skills, day-to-day life skills, hygiene and more. We encourage positive reactions and habits that help improve the child’s quality of life and social interactions. The ABA therapist assigned to your child will also work with the parents, family and any in-home caretakers to help build a strong support system around the child that understands the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. We empower the caretakers and family by providing ABA Therapy training for the families in the Tucson area so they can contribute to the child’s development and further support their growth.
