Frequently Asked Questions

Answering your questions about applied behavior analysis and therapy.

What does an ABA therapist do?

An ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapist works with individuals, often children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), to improve socially significant behaviors. They use behavioral techniques to assess, analyze, and modify behaviors to increase adaptive skills and reduce maladaptive behaviors.


What is an example of ABA treatment?

An example of ABA treatment could be teaching a child with autism to communicate effectively by using functional communication training. This involves reinforcing appropriate communication methods, such as using words or gestures, while minimizing reinforcing inappropriate behaviors like tantrums.


What is ABA treatment for autism?

ABA treatment for autism involves using behavior analysis principles to encourage positive behaviors and discourage negative ones. It focuses on breaking down complex skills into smaller, manageable tasks and using reinforcement to motivate learning. The goal is to enhance communication, social, and adaptive skills.
