Individualized Treatment Plans for Autism Spectrum Disorder

ABA is a structured intervention technique based on the principles of learning and human behavior. Data for target skills are collected, assessed, and evaluated, providing the foundation for growth in many skill areas.

Behavioural intervention is a large area of practice and there are many different methodologies that can be used – all specific to each client’s needs. The professionals at Northern Star Behaviour Services pride themselves on providing evidence-based intervention plans rooted in research, particular to the needs of the child.

Board Certified Behaviour Analysts
There are only 55 individuals BCBA-certified in Alberta.

ABA helps children reduce difficult behaviour and gain skills

At Northern Star Behaviour Services, our Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBAs) take the time to help children learn and practice new skills. As they master each new skill, more skills are added for them to learn. With time and practice, these skills turn into behaviour like playing well with others, holding conversations, and learning from others.
