Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is based on the principles of learning and behavior. Our ABA therapists in Charleston, SC work one on one with each patient to decrease their problem behaviors while simultaneously increasing their language and learning behaviors. Several different goals are targeted during each session including communication, social skills, self care, play, leisure, and motor skills.

LAURA C.

LAURA C.

ABA COORDINATOR, MA, BCBA

NORTH CHARLESTON
Laura was born and raised here in Charleston, SC, and first discovered ABA in 2011 during graduate school at the Citadel, where she earned her masters degree in Clinical Counseling. It was such a perfect fit that she pursued her BCBA certification after graduation instead of her LPC, and after working in both home and clinic settings she's excited to be at CPR with the chance to collaborate with other service providers under the same roof. Laura most enjoys identifying the preferences and needs of each learner, and using that information to make teaching new skills as fun as possible. She lives in West Ashley with her husband, daughter, and two cats.
