Is ABA Therapy Right for my Child?

MGM Behavioral ABA therapy applies the principle of learning to understand how behavior works in real situations. Our goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning.

MGM Behavior analysis program helps you to understand:

  • How behavior works
  • How behavior is affected by the environment
  • How learning takes place


MGM Behavioral ABA therapy programs can help:

  • Increase language and communication skills
  • Improve attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics
  • Decrease problem behaviors

How does MGM ABA therapy program work?

Our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA Therapy) involves many techniques for understanding and changing behavior. It is a flexible treatment:

  • It can be adapted to meet the needs of each unique child
  • Provided in many different locations – at home, at school, and in the community
  • Teaches skills that are useful in everyday life
  • Involve one-to-one teaching


What Does MGM ABA Program Involve?

Our ABA program is not “one size fits all.” Our ABA therapy program is written to meet the needs of the individual child. Our goal is to help each child work on skills that will help them become more independent and successful in the short term as well as in the future.

Planning and Ongoing Assessment

A qualified and trained behavior analyst (BCBA) designs and directly oversees the program. They customize the ABA program to each child’s skills, needs, interests, preferences and family situation.

The BCBA will start by doing a detailed assessment of each child’s skills and preferences. Then, they will use this to write specific treatment goals. Family goals and preferences may be included, too.

Treatment goals are written based on the age and ability level of the child.

Goals can include many different skill areas, such as:

  • Communication and language
  • Social skills
  • Self-care (such as showering and toileting)
  • Play and leisure
  • Motor skills
  • Learning and academic skills

The treatment plan breaks down each of these skills into small, concrete steps. The therapist teaches each step one by one, from simple (e.g. imitating single sounds) to more complex (e.g. carrying on a conversation).

The BCBA and therapists measure progress by collecting data in each therapy session. Data helps them to monitor the child’s progress toward goals on an ongoing basis.

The behavior analyst meets with family members once a week and program staff to review information about progress.
