Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science of understanding behavior, and most importantly, improving socially significant behavior so that those with limited skills or maladaptive behaviors can effectively learn and generalize more adaptive skills into their daily interactions. With California Behavioral Center’s parent company having been founded by behaviorists, innovators, and specialists in the mental health field in 1996 in Los Angeles, California (USA), our ABA department is at the core of CBC’s expansion to Dubai. At CBC, we are proud of our unparalleled advantage to not only bring to this region one of the most established and highly qualified ABA programs in the US, but have an ABA program model so well- integrated with our team approach, valuing all services disciplines equally.

With CBC’s commitment to provide credentialed services at the highest international standards, our ABA department embraces quality service and ensures treatment fidelity by following the proper supervision and training practices within the field. Our highly-trained team consists of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), a Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA), and Registered Behavior Technicians who work closely together with each client enrolled in our behavior analytic service. Whether one-on-one or group-based trainings, addressing unhealthy habits or more severe challenges, our ABA department offers a wide range of services to any client who wants to experience positive behavioral change:
