What is ABA?

admin Applied Behavior Analysis, JMA Blog

“The process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree.”

BCBA’s (Board Certified Behavioral Analysts) use objective data to drive the decision-making about an individual’s therapy program. Applicable to any behavioral issue or deficit, ABA principles can be used to increase or decrease certain behaviors to help the individual adapt to social situations. ABA can address a broad range of socially significant behaviors, from communication skills, social interaction and academics to gross and fine motor skill development, toileting, dressing, eating, personal self-care, domestic skills and work skills.
