What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment is a data-driven, scientific approach to teaching new and useful skills to individuals with autism. Because the spectrum of autism and other developmental disabilities is so broad, each of our techniques is tailored to the specific needs of each learner. Individual goals and measurable data are used in ABA therapy to determine the type of programming your child need. This information allows us to keep track of our progress, identify areas where we still need to improve, and highlight regions where we might need to shift direction. 

Applied Behavior Analysis was originally developed in the 1960s by Dr. Ivar Lovaas to help children with developmental disabilities like autism. 

ABA is based on the principles of operant conditioning, which uses reinforcement to shape behavior. The goal of ABA therapy is to teach new behaviors to replace old ones that are not helpful or desired. 

It is a science that uses behavioral principles to understand and change human behavior. It is a system of analyzing the environment in which people live, identifying the needs of individuals, and developing skills to meet those needs. It also includes teaching people new behaviors so they can get better at solving problems on their own.
