At BASS, we understand the everyday challenges families go through when a child struggles with behavioral, social, or mental disabilities. Luckily, St. Petersburg has a leading ABA therapy program which can help your child learn and succeed.
ABA therapy, formally known as Applied Behavior Analysis, involves studying your child’s specific needs and tailoring a learning program to help them communicate and enhance positive behavior. Through ABA therapy, your child can learn to communicate, practice good behavior, and increase independence. With our St. Petersburg location along with many other Florida locations, we are sure we can help your child grow and develop into a life-long learner.

“Our son cried the first time we left him there for therapy as he didn’t want to leave me. The second day, he let go of my hand and went back with the therapist without hesitation. That’s when I knew he enjoyed going. We can’t be happier with his progress.”
– Sandra Calhoun
About ABA Therapy in St. Petersburg
At BASS, we work with children of all ages who are autistic, have behavioral issues, or a mental disability to help them develop fine motor skills, increase independence, and practice good behavior. No matter where your child’s needs lie, BASS evaluates and learns about each and every child to create a plan specifically for them.
The sooner your child begins undergoing therapy, the greater the outcome will be for their development. Click here to learn more about when your child should start ABA therapy.
ABA therapy uses two teaching methods in order for your child to learn—Discrete Trial Instruction (DTI) and Natural Environment Teaching (NET). Both methods are structured to focus on good behavior in each child. DTI uses more of a structure setting and uses rewards to enhance desired behavior. NET, on the other hand, is less structured and uses environments where the child is most comfortable. This method uses the child’s desired to grow progress in a fast-paced environment.
