ABOUT

 

Our mission is to provide our clients and their families with highly individualized services based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. We strive to deliver effective interventions with compassion, expertise, and professionalism.



Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science that is research based, and produces the most effective and widely used interventions for persons with autism. In many states (New Jersey included), ABA has been deemed "medically necessary" for persons with autism.

 

We realize that there are many providers in New Jersey that offer in-home ABA services, and we understand how difficult it can be to determine which one will be the best fit for you.

 

All ABA providers will offer intervention packages that target socially-relevant skills in a way that is data-based and systematic. However, the nuances of these intervention packages will differ across providers, sometimes dramatically.

 

At Rinn ABA Consulting, we believe the most important aspects of a balanced and effective intervention package are:

 

1.    Highly-trained staff that receive ongoing supervision and support.

2.    Individualized intervention packages.

3.    Clearly written procedures and definitions.

4.    An emphasis on the quality of data over its quantity.

5.    Efficient and effective collaboration between staff members and clients.

6.    Transparency and accountability.

7.    Utilization of technology to improve all aspects of autism intervention.
