ABA looks at behavior to help understand:


   1 - How behavior works -

            Providing more appropriate ways to get needs met.

   2 - How behavior is affected by the environment -

            Changing the environment to support learning.

   3 - How learning takes place -

            Teaching new skills for success.

ABA can help:

   1 - Increase language and communication skills.

   2 - Improve attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics.

   3 - Decrease problem behaviors.

ABA is a way of teaching new behaviors and skills based on the science of learning.  

ABA is based on scientific research-not a program.

The methods of behavior analysis have been used and studied for decades. They have helped many kinds of learners gain different skills – from healthier lifestyles to learning a new language. Therapists have used ABA to help children with autism and related developmental disorders since the 1960s.
