Applied Behaviour Analysis

Applied Behaviour Analysis

  • Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a set of principles that form the bases for many behavioural treatments. ABA is based on the Science of learning and behaviour
  • ABA Therapy is used to increase language and communication skills. It is also used to improve attention, focus, social skills, memory and academics.
  • ABA Therapy can be used to help in decreasing problem behaviours.
  • ABA Therapy includes many different techniques. All of these techniques focus on ABC {(what happens before behaviour occurs antecedents) and what happens after behaviour}.

One technique is “Positive Reinforcement”.

  • ABA uses Positive Reinforcement in a way that can be measured in order to help bring about meaningful behaviour change.
