We provide in-home and in-community ABA services including consultation and direct ABA therapy for the assessment and treatment of problem behavior and skill deficits related to a variety of diagnoses.

Our Philosophy Novus Behavior Associates strives to provide high quality, effective, and all-encompassing behavior therapy to all of our clients, regardless of age or diagnosis.

We believe it is important to educate others that ABA is not just for young children with autism. ABA treatment can and has been applied to a wide range of social issues, problems, and populations. Our services are for children, adolescents, and adults, and we serve individuals with a variety of diagnoses including autism, intellectual disabilities, ADHD and those without a diagnosis.
As a small practice, our services are provided by behavior analysts and masters level technicians in the natural environment, wherever the need for services is greatest. At the onset of services, it is vital to assess each individual’s current level of functioning in this natural environment in order to create a highly individualized treatment plan and relevant programming. It is our belief that effective treatment cannot occur without collaboration, consultation and training amongst caregivers and other disciplines, as well as continuously evaluated data-based treatment decisions. As devoted practitioners with years of service in the field, it is our aim to never sacrifice services or our commitment to our clients for any reason.
Applied Behavior Analysis is the scientific application of techniques and principles to bring about behavior change and teach new skills. ABA looks at the relationship between an individual and his or her environment to facilitate learning. By understanding this relationship, we can help modify the environment to maximize behavior change. This approach has been shown to be applicable for all learners across a wide variety of behaviors. For example, the principles of ABA have been applied to smoking cessation, weight loss, toilet training, behavior reduction, and language acquisition. Its principles have been successfully applied in kids, teens, and adults with all different diagnoses.
