This innovative treatment based on the principles of learning has been shown to be safe and effective in treating Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ABA has been endorsed by many state and federal agencies, including the US Surgeon General, because of its success in helping improve patients’ functioning and independence. Plus, ABA is fun for children because it teaches them to learn through play.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of behavioral and learning principles to everyday, real-world situations in order to increase or decrease certain behaviors. The focus of therapy is on changing specific behaviors and emotional responses by eliminating undesirable reactions and learning more desirable ones.
