  • What is ABA ?
    Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA refers to a set of principles that focus on how behaviors work, or are affected by the environment, as well as how learning takes place. The term behavior refers to skills and actions needed to talk, play, and live. ABA therapy applies our understanding of how behavior works to real situations, and its relationship with the environment. The goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease maladaptive behaviors that can cause harmful or affect learning. ABA therapy programs can help children with autism or other developmental disorders to: Increasing language and communication skills Reducing negative behaviors like self-harm Increasing their social abilities like completing tasks, communicating, and learning new skills Implementing maintenance behaviors like self-control and self-regulation Teaching them to transfer learned behaviors to new environments Modifying the learning environment to challenge them in certain scenarios The methods of behavior analysis have been used and studied for decades. They have helped many kinds of learners gain different skills – from healthier lifestyles to learning a new language. Therapists have used ABA to help children with autism and related developmental disorders since the 1960s.
  • What is the evidence that ABA works?
    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 therapy includes many different techniques. All these techniques focus on antecedents (what happens before a behavior occurs) and on consequences (what happens after the behavior).
  • At what age ABA therapy can start?
    ABA therapy can start as soon as 18 months to 21 years old.
