ABA - Applied Behavior Analysis
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science through which socially meaningful changes are made to your child’s life. Simply put, ABA is the methodology used by our BCBAs and Behavior Technicians to help your child achieve his or her greatest potential.

Functional Behavior Assessments
A Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) is an assessment that clearly identifies specific target behavior(s) and the reason behind that behavior (or the “function”). Some behaviors may have more than one function. FBAs can be thought of as a tool used by a BCBA to figure out why your child is doing what (s)he is doing. Once your child’s BCBA figures that piece of the puzzle out, the BCBA can provide functionally-based treatment recommendations.
Use of a unique Functional Communication , Behavioral Skills Training (BST) approach to social skills instruction called POWER-Solving and AIM
Our BCBAs and Behavior Technicians work hard for your child and want to provide you, the parent, with the skillset you need to continue helping your child when we can’t be there. It is crucial to your child’s success to have a team of adults who are all on the same page. Parent and caregiver training is part of every CPT client’s treatment plan.
Social Skills Groups
In addition to your child’s time with his or her Behavior Technician and BCBA, your child’s BCBA may also recommend social skills groups as part of the treatment plan. This involves your child attending the social skills group, in person or via telehealth, on a recurring basis with other CPT clients to promote prosocial behavior.
In Our Centers
Our Centers are becoming a strong focus for the expansion of Connect Plus Therapy. As the demand for Social Skills and full day care is needed, CPT is working diligently to facilitate that need.
In the Community
One of the biggest challenges parents of children with ASD report is difficulty in the community. Our BCBAs can develop community-based goals and programming. Your child’s BCBA and Behavior Technician can support you in the community in addition to your home.
We go into schools, too! If your child has a need for our services in their school, please let your child’s BCBA know and let us take care of the rest.
