WHAT IS APPLIED BEHAVIOUR ANALYSIS?
ABA - THE SCIENTIFIC APPROACH

ABA has proven to be effective in reducing problem behaviors exhibited by those with developmental disabilities for over 40 years by empirical evidence.
Behaviour Analysts use data and evidence-based practice to derive conclusions on the possible reasons why a person may present with particular problem behaviors.

The data used to inform decisions is collected by systematic observation from trained behavior analysts and repeated measurements. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a scientific approach to understanding behavior.
