Providing High-Quality, In-Home ABA Therapy To Children
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy is a popular and effective treatment for children with autism.
ABA is based on the principles of learning and behavior and focuses on reinforcing positive behaviors and reducing negative ones.
It is often used to help children with autism improve their social skills, communication, and ability to learn new things.
Here at Sami’s Angels ABA Services, we specialize in providing high-quality in-home ABA therapy to children in Arizona.
We accept most commercial insurance plans and United Healthcare Medicaid community plans.

How We Utilize Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy
ABA therapy is not a one-size-fits-all approach and is tailored to each individual child's needs and goals.
It is typically provided by a team of professionals, including a behavior analyst, therapist, and sometimes a parent or caregiver.
The therapy is typically provided in a structured and consistent manner, with regular progress assessments to ensure that the child is making progress.
Discrete Trial Training
One of the key components of ABA therapy is a technique called discrete trial training.
This involves breaking down complex tasks into smaller, more manageable steps and teaching them to the child one step at a time.
For example, a child may be taught to make eye contact with another person before being taught to say "hello."
Over time, the child will learn to put these skills together and eventually be able to initiate a conversation with someone.
Another important aspect of ABA therapy is the use of positive reinforcement.
This means that the child is rewarded for displaying positive behaviors, such as making eye contact or engaging in a conversation.
This helps to motivate the child to continue practicing and improving their skills.
