Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based treatment strategy used to decrease challenging behavior and increase more socially-appropriate behaviors. Blue Bird Day offers in–home ABA therapy in Wheaton and the western suburbs including Naperville, Glen Ellyn, Downers Grove, Lombard, Winfield, and Warrenville. These in-home therapists are assigned to a single family and follow strict company protocols for safety, including daily temperature checks.
If your child qualifies for additional therapy services, your in-home Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) can assist with virtual sessions with one of our Blue Bird Day licensed therapists.
Additional Virtual Therapy Services in Wheaton and surrounding suburbs include:
How does ABA fit into the Blue Bird Day Wheaton program?
- If your child qualifies for the Blue Bird Day program, they have the option to transition into the new Blue Bird Day Wheaton location as state guidelines permit.

Who makes up the Applied Behavior Analysis therapy team?
Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA)
Blue Bird Day’s Behavior Analysts play a key role on the team as they oversee the instruction programs and behavior management protocols. They are responsible for conducting assessments, creating individualized treatment plans, caregiver training, data analysis, protocol modifications, and provide collaboration within the therapeutic disciplines and the families.
In Home Registered Behavior Technicians (RBT)
Blue Bird Day’s Behavior Therapists are primarily responsible for the direct implementation of behavior analytic services that are written by the BCBA. They adhere to the principles of ABA therapy within group and individual treatment sessions and work closely under the supervision of the Behavior Analysts.
ABA Therapists and Analysts use interventions such as reinforcement, prompting and fading, shaping, modeling, chaining and task analysis, which are all common ABA techniques. These strategies have been effective in teaching a wide variety of skills in learners with and without disabilities.
We are proud to start providing ABA therapy serving the western suburbs including Wheaton, Naperville, Glen Ellyn, Downers Grove, Lombard, Winfield, and Warrenville.
