What is ABA?
Behavior Analysis is a scientifically validated approach to understanding behavior and how it is affected by the environment…Since the 1960’s, therapists have been applying behavior analysis to help children with autism and related developmental disorders.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of these techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior…These techniques can be used in structured situations such as classroom lessons as well as in “everyday” activities such as a family dinnertime or an outing to a neighborhood playground.
It is recommended by the New York State Department of Health that principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and behavior intervention strategies be included as important elements in any intervention program for young children with autism.“Behavioral Techniques” refer to specific procedures aimed at teaching new skills and behavior. Intensive behavioral intervention programs use an array of behavioral techniques that change over time as the child progresses and as different skill areas are addressed.
