What is ABA therapy?
ABA is short for Applied Behavior Analysis. This is a type of therapy that is evidence-based and that centers around improving or changing behaviors present in children with behavioral disorders and problems, including autism spectrum disorders (ASD). This method teaches learners how they can break down complicated tasks into smaller steps that make the tasks easier for them manage. ABA services have been used to teach children with ASD how to communicate their needs, wait, make friends, ask for help, follow directions and attend to a task.Learn more
