What is Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy’s goal is to decrease problematic behaviors and increase skill acquisition for improved functional abilities across environments: 

ABA programs can help children: 

  • Increase language and communication 

  • Improve attention, social skills  and academics

  • Learn new skills by breaking it down into steps (toothbrushing, toileting, etc)

  • Decreasing self-injurious behavior, tantrums and elopement (running away).
