Why Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?

At Spark Learning, we use ABA techniques to help us make meaningful improvements to your child's behavior. We first identify your concerns, set goals for your child based on those concerns, and encourage behavioral changes through prompts to improve their quality of life.

Along the way, Spark therapists seek to simplify the learning process, reduce challenging behavior, maximize success, and teach you how to apply the same techniques at home. While our interventions may target weaknesses, they always do so by expanding the child’s strengths.

The ABA Breakdown


ABA focuses on behaviors of social significance that we apply in our everyday lives. Therefore, the outcomes are meaningful to your child and family.


ABA focuses on increasing desired behavior and decreasing undesirable behavior. Behaviors are interactions with environments that can be observed, measured and changed.


ABA is data driven. We observe, measure, and analyze data we record during each session. This ensures that our therapy produces the desired results.
