What Is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an empirically based intervention which is used to help problem/maladaptive behaviors and increase pro-social behaviors within individual’s life.
ABA strategies can be used with all age groups (infants to elderly).
Through the use of ABA, clinicians can assess skill deficits or behavioral barriers in multiple settings. These include home, school, community, or in the workplace. This process provides skills for the clients and their families.
Strategies are customized per the individual’s needs.
This occurs through the manipulation of reinforcers to create a fun and effective learning environment, which naturally encourages the individual to learn, work, and demonstrate the skills independently while sustaining progress.
