Definition of ABA
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) studies the principles of how learning happens, and uses those principles to bring about positive change in behavior. ABA consists of many evidence- based practices (practices that are backed by significant research) aimed at increasing positive, useful behaviors and reducing behaviors that are detrimental either physically, socially, and/or academically. ABA therapy is also used to increase language and communication skills, improve attention, focus, social skills, self help skills, memory and academics.
