What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Choosing the right treatment is a critical first step in the journey to becoming as independent as possible. With so many treatment options out there, choosing the right treatment could be challenging. Applied behavioral analysis (ABA) is an application of behavior principles to support teaching new skills and reduce challenging behaviors by teaching socially acceptable behaviors as alternatives. The application of Applied Behavior Analysis has been proven in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorder, intellectual or developmental disabilities, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injury, and other neurologically based problems.

Interventions developed within the field of ABA have been successfully used to teach communication skills, daily living skills (e.g., dressing, use of utensils, toileting or washing hands), play and social skills (e.g., how to take turns, how to make friends, empathy), executive functioning skills, job skills, socially appropriate behaviors to replace challenging behaviors and many other skills.

“Parenting your child with autism is simply an extreme version of parenting. All parents know that they have an impact on their children’s lives, but few have the potential to have the impact that we do. We, parents of children with autism, have to work harder to assure that our children learn all they can, reach their potential, and when we rely on ABA to measure progress and guide teaching, we know we are making all the difference we can.”
