Our mission at Family Focused ABA is to provide clients and caregivers with the support they need through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA utilizes research based methods to teach new skills, increase independence, and decrease challenging behavior. Among other things, ABA can be used to teach communication, decrease food selectivity or other behaviors that impede learning or cause safety concerns, and increase social and play skills, .
