What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?

ABA is a client-centered approach of intervention based upon the relationship between the individual and their environment. This form of science includes general “laws” about how behavior works and how learning takes place. ABA follows the idea that successful learning occurs because of a person’s interaction with their environment (pleasant or unpleasant). The outcomes of our behavior in different environments are what help to shape our future behaviors. By having a strong understanding of how our environment impacts behavior, ABA works by manipulating or “changing” the environment to change behavior and increase learning opportunities.

ABA is a scientific, research-driven, evidence-based, and proven most effective treatment method for individuals diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). To be considered “evidence-based” means that the school of thought has passed rigorous scientific tests of its quality, usefulness, and effectiveness. Its fundamentals can be used to treat a wide variety of challenging behavior and create a nurturing environment for acquiring new skills, such as language, social and group skills, play skills, and daily living skills.

The amount of therapy and level of parent involvement in your child’s ABA program will vary according to his or her specific needs. Whether clinic based or in-home, the road to your child’s success will be a collaborative effort between the Learning Tree ABA therapy team and your family.

Where can I find grants and scholarships?
