Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)


What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapeutic approach that uses scientifically validated learning and behavior change principles to help individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) reach their full potential.

It's important to note that ABA is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The specific techniques used will vary depending on the child's individual needs and goals.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about ABA:

ABA should always be implemented by a qualified professional who is trained in working with children with ASD.

ABA should be based on the principles of positive reinforcement and respect for the child's individual needs and preferences.

ABA should be tailored to the child's specific goals and should be regularly evaluated to ensure progress is being made.
