Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy
What is ABA?
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the science of studying human behavior. It came about in the early 1900s. John Watson, B.F. Skinner, and Ivan Pavlov are just a few of ABA’s founding fathers.
ABA refers to the term “behavior” as “any response that can be observed and measured.” Applied behavior analysis therapy uses the principles of behavior to increase and decrease specific behaviors.
