What is ABA?
Once your child is detected with Autism, one of the most common therapies that may be advised, would be applied behavior analysis, more commonly known as ABA Therapy. Just as the name sounds, Applied Behavior Analysis is based on the science of learning and motivation. This science includes general laws regarding how behavior works and how learning takes place. In short, ABA aims to change behavior using the principles of learning. It essentially provides techniques to appraise and increase good behavior, and condemn and decrease undesirable behavior.
