Behavior Therapy in Weston

About Us

About Weston Behavior

Weston Behavior is an agency specialized in individualized ABA treatment for children and teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other Challenging Behaviors.   


Weston Behavior utilizes comprehensive assessments, and treatment methods based on the Applied Behavior Analysis, to address the need for behavioral change of children and adolescents.  We make sure the therapy program is developed with the parents, so they can have the proper skills to handle any challenging behavior for their love ones. These therapy objectives are implemented by the Behavior Assistants under direct supervision of a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Therapist.  


Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the process of systematically applying interventions based on the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior.
