What is ABA therapy?

ABA, or Applied Behavior Analysis, is an evidence-based method of treatment focusing on improving or changing targeted behaviors. It is most frequently used in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other behavioral disorders. ABA therapy teaches individuals how to perform complex tasks by breaking them down into smaller steps. It can be utilized to effectively improve behaviors that many children with ASD struggle with. These behaviors include the communication of needs, waiting, forming friendships, asking for assistance, following instructions and performing tasks.
