Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)


Applied Behavior Analysis is a set of concepts, techniques and principles used in the assessment, treatment, and prevention of problem behaviors.


The goals of ABA include increasing desirable behaviors, teaching new skills, promoting generalization of skills, and decreasing undesirable behaviors.


The components of ABA include measuring the behavior directly, conducting a functional analysis of the causes of the behavior, and changing the antecedents and consequences of the behavior.


Some ABA techniques used will include discrete trial training (DTT), Picture exchange communication system (PECS), structured teaching, and incidental teaching. (During consultation process these types of ABA will be explained more in depth).


To learn more about applied behavior analysis check out the book written by John J. Wheeler Ph.D. & David Dean Richey. The book was published in 2005. Behavior management: Principles and practices of positive behavior supports
