At Learning and Behavior Center, our ABA services are designed to improve socially significant behaviors such as reading, academics, social skills, communication, and adaptive living skill like motor skills, eating and food preparation, toileting, dressing, personal self-care, domestic skills, time and punctuality, money value and its applications, and home and community orientation.
Behavior Analysis is the scientific study of behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) applies the principles of learning and motivation from Behavior Analysis and the procedures and technology derived from those principles to the solution of social significance problems.
Over the past 40 years, several thousand published research studies have been documented the effectiveness of ABA across a wide range of:
Applied behavior analysis systematically applies interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree and demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior.
ABA focuses on the reliable measurement and objective evaluation of observable behavior. Vague or subjective terms such as ‘anger,’ ‘depression,’ ‘aggression,’ or ‘tantrums’ are redefined in observable and quantifiable terms, so their frequency, duration, or other measurable properties can be directly observed and recorded.
Treatment approaches grounded in ABA are now considered to be at the forefront of therapeutic and educational interventions for children and adults with disabilities. But other methods can be effective.
Discrete Trial Training (DTT) is a particular ABA teaching strategy enabling the learner to acquire complex skills and behaviors by first mastering the subcomponents of the targeted skill. By utilizing teaching techniques based on behavior analysis principles, the learner is gradually able to complete all subcomponent skills independently. Once the individual components are acquired, they are linked together to enable mastery of the targeted complex and functional skill. This methodology effectively teaches verbal behavior such as basic and advanced communication, play, motor, and daily living skills.
Although the DTT methodology is an integral part of ABA-based programs, other teaching strategies based on behavior analysis principles, such as National Environment Training (NET), may be used to address these more complex skills. NET teaches skills in a more natural environment in a more playful manner.
At LBC, all appropriate teaching approaches are based on the well-grounded principles of applied behavior analysis, education, and counseling:

COVID-19 Update: A Message From Our CEO
As we navigate through this difficult time, we, at LBC, want our staff and families to know that we are following CDC protocols and guidelines to ensure the safety of all Learners and team members. We kindly ask that you familiarize yourself with our guidelines and we look forward to serving our families with a spirit of health and safety.
Upon entry to the center, a temperature check will be conducted for our Learners and staff. We are requesting and enforcing that all our staff and families sanitize their hands every 30 minutes using soap and water, hand sanitizer, or rubbing alcohol. We are taking extra precautions for our center-based services and placing hand sanitizer and rubbing alcohol all around the center. In addition, everyone inside the center will be wearing face masks, in accordance with CDC guidelines, while in close proximity to our Learners and other staff members.
LBC may choose to enact a center-based quarantine should the situation call for it. For families who attend center sessions during a quarantine period, sessions will be moved to the home setting, contingent upon confirmation of health records that both staff and family do not present with Covid symptoms.
We are asking that any individuals that are sick (staff, learners, and their families) to cancel sessions and stay at home. Please do not send your child or yourself to the center if you show any symptoms. Please do not come to the center to work if you show any symptoms. You can come back to the center after 4-5 days of isolation. If you recognize the signs of an infectious disease, use personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves or a mask to minimize potential exposure.
I know this sounds excessive to some, but we are keeping the best interests of all our families and staff in mind. I truly hope that this pandemic clears rapidly for our families and team members, however we remain vigilant until CDC guidance has updated their recommendations. This is an example of how connected our world is and I urge you to stay connected and mindful of one another in this time of need.
