What is ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis is the scientific, systematic and evidence-based methodology for teaching skills, reducing problem behaviors, and enhancing the social and academic life of an individual. ABA can be used to teach a multitude of skills and behaviors including communication, academics, social behaviors , and self-help skills, and to promote independence and more.

ABA has proven to be a successful teaching model for people who have autism. The targeted skills are systematically broken down into their individual components and taught at an individualized pace in succession. Once the learner shows mastery of each skill, he or she moves on to build on that skill  ABA is widely recognized as a safe and effective intervention and is supported by decades of scientifically respected psychology and medical journals.
