What is ABA: Applied Behavior Analysis is the study of behavior and its real world applications. Through the science of behavior, we bring about socially significant change in the lives of the clients we serve by decreasing challenging behaviors and increasing functional behaviors.

In-Home ABA: We provide ABA in the natural environment, in the home and community! River City ABA understands that families are often juggling multiple therapies on top of school and recreational activities. With us, your ABA appointment is one less stop to make.

Family Training: We understand that lasting and meaningful behavior change cannot take place unless those closest to client are included in treatment. River City ABA begins services with an initial parent/family training.  This provides caregivers with an overview of the science of ABA, how it is implemented, and what to expect from its use. From there, we provide ongoing trainings on the specific programming being implemented.

Family Training:

Toilet Training: Those at River City ABA are experienced in providing toilet training consultation and assistance to a range of ages and diagnoses, including those without a formal diagnosis.
