Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) assessments can look different across providers, companies, and assessment tools used. This guide will give you a general idea of what to expect during an ABA assessment.
It is always best to address specific questions about your child or the assessment to the Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who will be conducting the evaluation.
A BCBA or “behavior analyst” is a professional certified in the field of behavior analysis. Behavior analysts provide supervision to a team of therapists who provide direct therapy and oversee ABA programming. Behavior analysts use evidence-based strategies to create support plans and provide personalized goals and programming across multiple developmental domains.
