    What is ABA?

    Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a process of studying and modifying behavior. It has been rigorously tested and is effective for many individuals with Autism and other developmental disorders and is one of the most commonly used, evidence-based methods. The Applied Behavior Analysis approach teaches social, motor, and verbal behaviors and reasoning skills, and is also effective in managing challenging behaviors.


    A Behavioral Approach provides parents, caregivers, and schools the tools necessary to help their child be successful, as well as handle the everyday challenges of living with a child with a disability.

    We are currently accepting students into our day programs at the LEAD transition center located at our site in Higganum, CT. These programs provide intensive small group or individual academic support for those students transitioning between placements, or those who have struggled to succeed in their current school program. We will work with districts and families to ensure the highest level of success for each student through collaborative work, consultation, and a multi-disciplinary approach.
