Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an empirically based intervention which is used to reduce problem/maladaptive behaviors and increase pro-social/adaptive behaviors within an individual’s life. ABA strategies can be used with all age groups (infants to elderly). 

Through the use of ABA, clinicians can assess skill deficits or behavioral barriers in multiple settings. These settings include home, school, community, or in the workplace. Following assessment, strategies are customized and implemented per the individual’s needs.

This occurs through the manipulation of reinforcers to create an engaging and effective learning environment, which naturally encourages the individual to learn, work, and demonstrate the skills independently. 

Maintaining progress is a key focus of ABA interventions. In addition to teaching skills across settings, the strategies used for skill sustainment are taught to the family of the individual. Family involvement creates the opportunity for long-term success.
