OUR SCIENCE

OUR MISSION ABA THERAPY for Portland

OUR SERVICES

Westside Behavior Therapy takes a whole-child approach when working with your family.  We provide services based on the needs of your child while keeping in mind that a child is also a part of a family.  Family involvement in services is not only allowed but highly encouraged.  Your child does not live in a bubble and we strive to address every aspect of your child's life in conjunction with those specific circumstances.

Behavior analysis focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place. Positive reinforcement is one such principle. When a behavior is followed by some sort of reward, the behavior is more likely to be repeated. Through decades of research, the field of behavior analysis has developed proven techniques for increasing useful behaviors and reducing those that may cause harm or interfere with learning.  

Our mission is to provide the evidence-based science of Applied Behavior Analysis to families in need.  We are determined to create meaningful change with a lasting effect.  ‚Äč
