What is ABA Therapy?
Applied Behavior Analysis therapy is a scientific and evidence-based treatment that used principles and procedures to decrease problem behaviors and increase positive behaviors. ABA is a scientifically validated approach to understanding behaviors and how it is affected by the environment. At Shaping Positive Behaviors, we provide a play-based model of ABA intervention, utilizing positive behavior interventions, and naturalistic teaching. We also provide other interventions of Applied Behavior Analysis
Supervised Learning Lab
Are you concerned that your child may have social and/or communication deficits?
At Shaping Positive Behaviors, we have a social skills curriculum that helps with social deficits. Many children and adolescence need additional help in learning how to act in different types of social situations. Our Social Skills groups are dedicated to working on skills that can help enhance participation in group settings.
The scientific teaching methods of Applied Behavior Analysis are utilized to effectively teach social skills within our social skills groups as well as peer play dates. The central goal of our social skills group is to pair other children with fun, reinforcing activities so that other children become more reinforcing and social interaction becomes more enjoyable, thus encouraging further appropriate social interaction and friendships.
Each child’s therapist accompanies them to the social skills group.
This may not be the school year you had planned, but we are here to make it easier for you by providing structured, supervised support when your child needs it.
We are here to meet your child’s needs with our Supervised Learning Lab.
Our teachers will assist children face-to-face with their virtual learning work assigned to them by their local school district.
Teachers in our Learning Lab are available to support your child’s virtual learning requirements. Students are required to bring a device from home to complete assignments for school, or we will provide a device if they do not have one.
Our Learning Lab has highly- qualified, state-certified teachers who will provide individualized and group instruction.

At Shaping Positive Behaviors, we are designed to have parents/caregivers be an integral part of the treatment team from initial assessment through discharge and beyond.
We engage in parent training and coaching so parents can learn how to employ the skills to develop routines and reinforcements in the home, community, and other environments.
