What is Applied Behavior Analysis?
Applied Behavior Analysis, known as ABA, is a method of therapy used to improve or change socially significant behaviors. ABA therapy is used to improve behaviors like social skills, reading, academics, and communication as well as learned skills like grooming, hygiene, fine motor dexterity, job proficiency, and even organization. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) can also help reduce potentially harmful behaviors such as aggression, elopement, and self-injury by determining why this behavior occurs, and teaching a more appropriate and functional behavior in it's place. Four decades of research have shown that ABA interventions are effective for improving language, cognition, adaptability and social skills across all age groups. ABA in practice has changed a lot over that time and a good therapist is always learning and improving based on current research. ABA involves setting very specific, measurable goals, and reinforcing all progress. Sessions look different for each child, depending on goals, but positive reinforcement, environmental changes, generalization of skills, and building positive relationships is part of every ABA session.
