Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a data driven science of all behaviour.
ABA focuses on the individual, their behaviour and the environments they interact with. It effectively quantifies emotional or psychological issues in terms of the behaviours that they are expressed through.
In ABA behaviours (public and private) are learned and are reinforced by environmental conditions (where, who and when). The goal of ABA is to increase behaviours that are helpful to the individual and decrease behaviours that may be harmful, based on theories and techniques of operant conditioning.
ABA is rooted in data collection which is pulled from observation, and formal assessments, as well as, ongoing progress monitoring. The decisions made in therapy are a direct result of the data and graphs that are created, providing an objective decision making opportunity for the therapist overseeing the clients care.
