Benefits of ABA Therapy

Families at Chicago ABA Therapy benefit from ABA therapy in various ways, including:

Enhanced Social Skills

At Chicago ABA Therapy, we focus on significantly enhancing your child's social skills, helping them form meaningful connections with peers and adults alike. Our approach includes explicit instruction coupled with ample opportunities for natural, practical application, nurturing essential social competencies across various settings.

Reduction of Learning Barriers

Our team provides targeted support designed to cultivate socially significant behaviors that replace challenging ones. We work collaboratively with families to apply effective strategies that boost skill acquisition, thus reducing barriers to learning and daily functioning.


Promoting Independence

Through carefully tailored ABA plans, we focus on empowering your child to achieve greater independence. We emphasize crucial life skills that foster self-reliance and build confidence in their abilities, applicable both within our therapy environments and beyond.


Supporting Smooth Transitions

Transitions can be challenging, filled with excitement and uncertainty. At Chicago ABA Therapy, we prepare your child for changes—big and small—by teaching them coping strategies and emotional regulation, equipping both your child and your family with the tools needed to manage transitions effectively.

Developing Essential Skills

Our ABA therapy is highly personalized, not a one-size-fits-all solution. We craft individual care plans that target specific areas where your child can benefit most, while also enhancing their natural talents. From communication skills, both expressive and receptive, to social interactions, play, and daily living skills like toileting, our therapy sessions are designed around enriching your child's abilities through engaging, play-based activities.

Embracing Neurodiversity

We celebrate each child's unique perspective, recognizing that an autism diagnosis enhances our understanding of their worldview. This neurodiverse-affirming approach allows us to appreciate and leverage their innate strengths in our therapy sessions.

Collaborative Care Team

Our multidisciplinary team includes behavior analysts, ABA therapists, and specialists in speech and language, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and psychology. We collaborate closely, meeting regularly to discuss progress and adapt goals, ensuring a cohesive approach to your child's development. Just as your child is an integral part of our learning community, we foster a collaborative environment among our staff and families.

Play-Based Learning Opportunities

Children thrive as they learn through play. Our therapists design ABA sessions that tap into your child's interests, turning moments of joy into powerful learning opportunities that resonate and stick.

Focusing on Strengths

Understanding that your child possesses numerous strengths already, we aim to highlight and build upon these. Our therapy sessions are structured to support areas of growth while reinforcing existing skills, all within a fun and supportive environment.

Creating a Supportive and Secure Environment

Our priority is to create a space where your child feels safe, supported, and eager to learn. Each session at Chicago ABA Therapy is conducted in a nurturing setting that promotes security and comfort, encouraging children to reach their developmental milestones with confidence.

Empowering Caregivers

We believe that therapy extends beyond our sessions. Therefore, we provide comprehensive training for caregivers, integrating ABA principles into everyday routines to support ongoing development at home. We value the insights from our families and strive to create a reciprocal learning environment.

"We were so happy with our experience with Chicago ABA. We began working with them when our son was almost 4, a few months after his autism diagnosis. It was such an amazing team to work with - everyone was professional, responsive, flexible, and worked so hard for our son to meet his goals, which he did beautifully. We worked together for almost 2 years before he left for kindergarten, and in that time period he met almost all of his goals. We went through several bumps in the road with behavioral difficulties, and the Chicago ABA team did an amazing job helping us problem solve, try new strategies and think of ways to translate those strategies at home. We couldn't recommend them more highly - anyone who works with Chicago ABA will be lucky to have the experience!"

"Chicago ABA Therapy is a boon for special needs kids and parents. They take a play-based, personalized approach and meet the kids where they are. They also go above and beyond - our ABA therapist took time to make sure we as parents understood every aspect of our child's experience, understood how to read his progress reports and generally made us feel a part of his therapy. My child loved all his therapists. Highly recommend the team!"
