Applied Behavior Analysis

What is Applied Behavior Analysis?

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is the design, implementation and evaluation of environmental modifications to produce socially significant improvements in behavior.

Does ABA get results?

ABA focuses on outcome rather than process. Behavior analysts continuously measure behavior to determine if progress is being made. Applied behavior analysis is data based and has the best scientifically demonstrated track record for teaching skills and replacing problem behavior with appropriate social skills.
The positive outcomes are outstanding. Experience indicates that intensive programs with ABA at their core are the most promising for teaching and maintaining skills.

Characteristics of ABA

Applied: ABA focuses on the implementation of basic principles to behaviors of significance to the participants.

Behavioral: ABA focuses on behavior in its own right as a target for change. The target behavior is directly observed and measured in the real-life environments.
Analytic: ABA seeks to identify functional relations between environmental events and behavior through systematic manipulation.

Technological: Procedures are completely identified and described and defined.
