Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is an evidenced-based treatment approach that focuses on teaching meaningful skills, measuring progress, adjusting teaching methods as needed, with the goal of improving the lives of children and their families. ABA has been demonstrated to be effective for children with autism and other learning needs across environments and skill areas. At Stride Academy, our highly skilled clinicians design an individualized ABA-based treatment program based on a comprehensive assessment and your goals for your child.
