What is ABA?
ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis and is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. It is achieved through setting up an environment that promotes behavior change.
Increase language and communication skills
Improve attention, focus, social skills, memory, and functional skills
Decrease problem behavior
The goal of any ABA program is to help each person work on skills that will help them become more independent and successful in the short term as well as in the future and is tailored to each individual’s needs.
