Core Program Components

Behavioral interventions are prominent interventions for treating individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental disabilities. At E.C.C.O., all of our interventions are based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA is not an intervention in itself, but rather a process and/or a category under which interventions can take place. The specific interventions under this category are validated empirically through research studies.  E.C.C.O. will use the evidence based principles of ABA to guide and maintain an attitude and discipline of best practice within all characteristics of our company.
