ABA, or Applied Behavior Analysis, is a set of principles that form the basis for many behavioral treatments, and is based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA is considered an evidence-based “best” practice treatment by the US Surgeon General and by the American Psychological Association. “Evidence based” means that ABA has passed scientific tests of its usefulness, quality, and effectiveness.

ABA is centered around how behavior works and how learning takes place. ABA therapy applies these laws to behavior treatments in a way that helps to increase useful or desired behaviors. ABA also applies these laws to help reduce behaviors that may interfere with learning or
behaviors that may harmful. ABA therapy is used to increase language and
communication skills. It is also used to improve attention, focus, social skills, memory,
and academics. ABA can be used to help decrease problem behaviors. For more information about ABA please see the Autism Speaks website, or download the informational PDF.
