What kind of ABA does Los Ninos Services Provide and how can it help my child?​

Los Ninos Services providers are trained in Verbal Behavior (VB) therapy. Verbal behavior therapy teaches communication and langauge. It is based on the principles of ABA and the theories of behaviorist B.F. Skinner. This approach encourages children with autism to learn langauge by connecting words with their purposes, providing for a more naturalistic learning style. Children learn that words can help them get desired objects or results. Verbal Behavior therapy does not focus on words only as labels only (cat, car, etc.). Rather, it focuses on teaching the child how to generalize their use of words and their understanding of words.
