Okay, so let’s review – what is ABA?
In my latest book, Managing the 5 Most Challenging Childhood Behavioral Problems of Our Day, I devote a chapter to Applied Behavior Analysis, or “ABA”. This ‘ABA’ approach is seemingly mysterious, frequently cited, but mostly misunderstood. Put simply, it is a systematized and regimented series of approaches to analyze, understand, and modify behavior. The approaches are applied to daily life demands and circumstances.
What is it used to treat?
Applied Behavior Analysis is typically geared toward the treatment of autism. However, ABA is used to treat any type of behavior and any condition we want to understand and modify. This can range from a child being off task during math class to a child exhibiting self-stimulatory behavior during free time. You will find many informative videos and can read the eBook here.
