Applied Behavior Analysis

The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program is offered under the Baylor Clinic for Assessment, Reserach, and Education (Baylor CARE). It is a unique evidence-based program that serves individuals from birth to adulthood with a one-to-one child to therapist ratio, using the Applied Behavior Analysis approach.  The program aims to provide individuals with developmental disabilities with evidence-based therapeutic interventions aimed at enhancing communication, social, adaptive, behavioral, and other needs.  Additionally, we are dedicated to providing your child with specialized therapeutic treatment through the development and implementation of an effective and individualized behavior treatment plan.  The ABA program at the Baylor Autism Resource Clinic is staffed by graduate students in the Applied Behavior Analysis program at Baylor University, and is supervised by Dr. Tonya Davis, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst-Doctoral.
