ABA Evidence-Based Treatment
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a proven clinical therapy that’s been producing impressive results for autistics since the 1960s. ABA therapy can improve social, communication, and learning skills, as well as general quality of life, through positive reinforcement. Further, ABA assesses the development, implementation, and assessment of natural environment behaviors to promote improvement and replace behavior. ABA includes the use of observation, data collection and functional analysis of the relationship between the environment and behavior.
