ABA (Autism Therapy)
Unlike traditional psychology, ABA focuses on observable behaviors rather than what an individual is thinking (or cognitions). A wide range of settings (schools, parent training, staff training, OBM, special education, self-management) can apply ABA techniques, but it is vital to highlight that the ABA theoretical approach focuses on controlling the environment rather than modifying internal events or thoughts. The ABA’s theories are backed up by controlled behavioral observation and measurement.
ABA is a science focused to studying and improving human behavior. ABA is unique in its focus, objective, and methodology. Behavior analysts define target behaviors, which are important social behaviors. In order to demonstrate a reliable association between the intervention and behavior improvement, behavior analysts intervene. After a successful intervention, data collection continues. Behavior analysts plan for generalization and maintenance to ensure the behavior persists over time and environments. To provide a consistent methodology, behavior analysts often train staff and caregivers.
