Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

aba therapy

ABA is short for Applied Behavioral Analysis, and it is often described as the "gold standard" for autism treatment. Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is a system of autism treatment based on behaviorist theories which, simply put, state that desired behaviors can be taught through a system of rewards and consequences. ABA is a service that is covered by health insurance.



What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of the science of human behavior utilizing behavioral principles to help individuals make meaningful and socially significant behavioral changes. ABA interventions are:

  • Applied: deal with problems of demonstrated social importance

  • Behavioral: deal with measurable behavior

  • Analytic: require an objective demonstration that the procedures caused the effect 

  • Technological: described so they can be implemented by anyone with training and resources

  • Conceptual Systems: arise from a specific and identifiable theoretical base

  • Effective: produce strong, socially important effects

  • Generality: designed from the outset to operate in new environments and continue after the formal treatments have ended

How can ABA be used?

  • Decrease problem behaviors

  • Teach & increase socially significant behaviors

  • Teach socially appropriate behaviors

  • Develop & implement preventative strategies

  • Develop & implement reinforcement procedures

  • Teach how to more efficiently access one’s environment

What is a BCBA?

A board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) is a professional that has obtained a master’s level or doctorate degree in applied behavior analysis or a closely related field (e.g. school psychology, special education, etc.) with an emphasis in ABA. A BCBA has completed supervised fieldwork under the supervision of a BCBA and obtained national certification from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. Refer to for more information.
