Applied Behavioral Analysis
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence based intervention applying the principles of learning and motivation to improve the outcome of learners displaying social, speech and behavior challenges. At Imagine Academy, our students receive this therapy through a variety of contexts, and functional programs. Using a variety of assessment tools, each students’ programs are created and individualized based on these results. In addition, our program provides natural environmental interventions as well as social curriculum to support the individual learning styles of our focused learners.
At Imagine Academy our staff have been trained in Safety-Care Behavioral Safety Training, a leading crisis prevention training course focusing on how to prevent behavioral challenges, de-escalate early and manage behaviors safely. The curriculum is founded upon evidence-based research in the areas of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) which we believe offers our staff and those we serve with the best strategies available. Safety-Care is consistent with our goal to maintain a comfortable, safe and learning environment and it meets or exceeds the accreditation standards outlined by CARF, JCAHO, COA and other agencies concerned with quality care. If you have additional questions regarding Safety-Care and its implementation, don’t hesitate to ask.
