Applied Behavior Analysis Philosophy

ScienceWelcome to B.I.G. Solutions!  We believe EACH child can grow!  Our team of therapists desires to help your child succeed. Programs are individually developed to focus on the specific needs of your son or daughter.

B.I.G. Solutions approach is based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a scientific study of behavior.  Applied Behavior Analysis is:

the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors…

(Baer, D.M., Wolf, M.M., & Risely, T. 1968)

Our focus is on teaching your child new skills in order to address any deficits in learners with developmental disabilities.  Our agency uses comprehensive ABA programs that integrate and evaluate varied instructional approaches. These may include some or all of the following methods:

  • Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) – ABA treatment model which targets behavior that, when learned, produces variations in other untrained behaviors.
  • Incidental Teaching – An evidenced-based method that involves creating an environment in which your child’s interests are naturally cultivated and nurtured by following the child’s lead, allowing one to capture an initiation in a natural environment.
  • Discrete Trail Training (DTT) – A method often used within ABA and one part of a complete program to help increase motivation and learning through short and manageable trials to maximize success.





Every program is focused on age-appropriate areas of development including behavior, language, communication, social skills and self-help. We want to foster competency and independence in your child so they can generalize his/her skills to the natural environments of home, school and community.
