Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Autism Program

For children and adolescents with autism and their families.

About The Child Center

An autism diagnosis. It may not be what you had envisioned for your child and your family may not know where to turn for guidance, but support is available. Every parent wants to see their child express themselves, successfully engage with others and reach their full potential. The Child Center’s ABA program can help.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science that uses the principles of learning to help change and teach new behavior. It is the only scientifically validated treatment for autism endorsed by the U.S. Surgeon General and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)..

The Child Center offers two types of ABA treatment models: comprehensive treatment and focused treatment. Comprehensive treatment occurs Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM, and focused treatment occurs Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM or 12:00 PM until 3:00 PM. ABA therapy can be provided at The Child Center’s Eugene campus or at your child’s school. Additionally, parent/caregiver training is provided on a monthly basis. ABA program placements are made by Board Certified Behaviors Analysts or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts and are based on clinical assessment.
