What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a research-based behavior intervention strategy that has been shown to positively impact programming in schools, homes, and in the community for those with disabilities. ABA is best known for its applications in the area of autism, but it is also a recognized strategy that applies widely to the instruction and support of students with varying abilities in our schools and community homes.
ABA is specifically identified as an evidence-based practice for working with children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Early intervention for young children with autism has been demonstrated to be effective in helping close the gap between these children and their typically developing peers (BACB, 2014).
