ABA is Applied Behavior Analysis. It is the science of human behavior applied to help improve the lives of different types of individuals. It utilizes evidence-based, empirically validated interventions to improve skill deficits and reduce negative behaviors. There is a strong focus on family involvement and the work is done in the child’s natural environment. The work is not complete until the child shows success in his/ her “real world” outside of therapy sessions. Data is analyzed continuously along with developmental evaluation tools to constantly set and achieve short and long-term goals individualized for each child.
