What is ABA?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the scientific approach recognized as the "gold standard" for the most effective intervention for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual and Developmental Delay and Disability. ABA is listed first on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's list of treatments. ABA is the most widely accepted treatment among health-care professionals and schools because it is a scientific approach to enhancing socially significant behaviors and reducing unwanted or inappropriate behaviors. For over 40 years, ABA therapy has proven an effective treatment for children and adults diagnosed with autism and related conditions.
