 Applied Behavior Analysis - ABA

We all make decisions throughout our lives.  If doing a particular action provides us with reinforcement - we are likely to do it again in the future.  The science of ABA explores this relationship and is devoted to the understanding the improvement of human behavior.

Understanding that every child is different means that each target behavior must be addressed individually, which forces us to ask some preliminary questions:

  • Is the behavior of interest of social significance?
  • How does this behavior compare to other behavioral concerns?
  • What is the motivation behind the behavior?
  • What is a socially valid replacement behavior?
  • Is everyone willing to be involved in the child's program?
