Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is an evidence based scientific technique and approach to addressing core deficits of autism spectrum disorder. ABA also is a scientific approach for understanding behavior. This type of therapy is proven to improve social, communication and learning skills through reinforcement strategies. Skills are broken down into smaller, component parts, celebrating each step of the way with positive reinforcement.
Many experts consider ABA to be gold-standard treatment for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and other developmental conditions.
