What is ABA therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, or ABA therapy as it is commonly referred to, is an evidence-based therapy that focuses on reducing problem behaviors (i.e., tantrums, self-injurious behaviors, etc.) and teaching replacement behaviors (i.e., communicating, skills needed to learn, etc.). ABA therapy also aims to teach skills in the area of social interaction, communication, adaptive, motor, executive functioning, cognition, and play. 

ABA Therapy is a proven treatment for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD); however, it is not exclusive to treating ASD.
