What is ABA?
Applied behavioral analysis (ABA) is a type of therapy that can improve social, communication, and learning skills through positive reinforcement. Many experts consider ABA to be the gold-standard treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other developmental conditions. The goal of treatment depends largely on your child’s individual needs.
ABA often results in children:
- Showing more interest in people around them
- Communicating with other people more effectively
- Learning to ask for things they want clearly and specifically.
- Having more focus at school
- Reducing or stopping self-harming behaviors
- Having fewer tantrums or other outbursts
Characteristics of ABA are:
- Technological: a written description
- Applied: socially significant behavior
- Generality: lasts over time
- Effective: practical results for the client
- Analytical: experimental control
- Behavioral: precise measurement of behavior
- Systematic: uses basic principles of behavior
