ABA Therapy

Applied Behaviorism Analysis Therapy

Behavior analysis focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place. Positive reinforcement is one such principle. When a behavior is followed by some sort of reward, the behavior is more likely to be repeated. Through decades of research, the field of behavior analysis has developed many techniques for increasing useful behaviors and reducing those that may cause harm or interfere with learning.


Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the use of these techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior used as an intervention for ASD.
