What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?

Behavior Analysis is a scientific model of how behaviors affect and are affected by environmental events. ABA is the applied use of principles and methods of behavior analysis (such as reinforcement), to create meaningful changes in socially important behaviors. ABA has four major characteristics:

  1. An objective assessment of the individual and the individual’s environment that forms the basis of an individualized treatment plan.
  2. Understanding of the context of behavior within the individual, his or her family, and his or her community.
  3. The utilization of principles and methods of behavior analysis to improve the individual’s independence and quality of life.
  4. Objective and ongoing data analysis to inform clinical decision making.

ABA has been demonstrated as effective at treating the symptoms of ASD.

Your child will receive individualized treatment based on your goals and scientific treatment models.


Focused ABA Treatment

Concentrates on a small number of treatment goals with fewer hours of intervention (10-25 hours per week). A focused ABA program may be appropriate for individuals who have a severe behavior that should be prioritized above all other goals (e.g., severe aggression or self-injury) and may also be appropriate for individuals who lack basic functional skills (e.g., toileting or feeding).

Comprehensive ABA Treatment

Targets a number of developmental domains such as cognitive, communicative, social, and adaptive functioning. An example of a comprehensive ABA program is an early intervention program attempting to overcome deficits across a range of developmental areas. Due to the number of areas and goals these programs generally have more hours of intervention (more than 20 hours per week).

Caregiver Support

Regardless of the treatment model, caregivers and other family members should be included in the treatment of the individual with ASD. Caregivers know their child better than anyone and have unique insights that can enhance the effectiveness of the treatment program. Caregivers are also responsible for their child’s learning when the child is not at school or in treatment. The ability of the caregiver to support the treatment plan in a manner consistent with the professionals’ implementation of the treatment plan is essential to the child’s success.
