Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for Adults

ABA Behavior Analysis
Applied Behavior Analysis, Blog, Education

While ABA is commonly thought of as a treatment for children and teens, it can greatly benefit the adult population as well. One of the reasons ABA is effective is because it is highly individualized treatment; this applies to services for adults as well!

Emerge provides behavioral services to adults through Medicaid Waivers, insurance, and private funding. Utilizing these funding sources, ABA clinicians work with the adult client, their caregiver(s), and any additional members of the treatment team in a comprehensive and client-focused approach to treatment. Through behavior consultation, ABA clinicians engage in coordination of care and collaboration with the adult and their team to optimize independence and quality of life.
