Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)

aba is awesome

Applied behavior analysis focuses on the concepts which explain how learning takes place. Positive reinforcement is an important principle. When a behavior is followed by some sort of reward, the behavior is much more likely to be repeated. After decades of study, developments in the field of applied behavior analysis have yielded many new techniques for increasing useful behaviors and reducing those that may cause harm or interfere with learning.

    It’s great that ABA can help with skills like listening and imitating. My close friend has a 5-year-old autistic son, and he often struggles to follow a conversation. ABA may be worth a try if it can help him to communicate more easily.

    I’ve heard that people with ABA can have anger issues. I like how you mention ABA is now recognized as an effective treatment for autism. Thank you for the information. I would recommend reaching for ABA therapy to help treat autism.
