What is Applied Behavior Analysis?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based, behavioralscience-focused treatment. It is considered the best practice for behavioral treatment by the US Surgeon General and by the American Psychological Association. ABA has passed scientific tests that prove its usefulness, quality and effectiveness.
How Does it Work?
