What is Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)?

By : Dr. KidNurture

ABA, applied behavioral analysis, is simply the application of behavioral principles, to everyday situations, that will, over time, increase or decrease targeted behaviors. ABA has been used to help individuals acquire many different skills, such as language skills, self-help skills, and play skills; in addition, these principles can help to decrease maladaptive behaviors such as aggression, self-stimulatory behaviors, and self-injury.

 

It is critical to remember that there is no single program or plan that "is" ABA.

 

Typically, an ABA program is aimed at children between 2 and 6 years of age. This does not mean that ABA is not effective for older children, adolescents and even adults; but ideally, the ABA program is carried out before children start school.
