A program as individual as your loved one
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a scientific approach to understanding behavior.
ABA refers to a set of principles that focus on how behaviors change, or are affected by the environment, as well as how learning takes place. The term “behavior “refers to skills and actions needed to communicate, socialize, learn and live.
UCP Heartland aims to provide high quality behavioral services for program participants and their families. By using procedures based on the science of behavior, we provide fun, engaging, and stimulating activities to teach the skills needed to gain independence in the community.
