What is ABA Therapy
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA is commonly practiced as a therapeutic intervention for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ABA helps individuals improve social interactions, learn new skills, and maintain positive behaviors. ABA therapy applies the understanding of how behavior works to real-life situations.
Behavior Therapists work on basic skills such as focusing and listening, while simultaneously tapping into more complex skills such as reading and social skills. Following these steps helps reduce behaviors that make it harder for children to learn, thereby giving them the skills to develop, learn and grow in a healthy and positive way.
