What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for children or teens?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for children or teens with or without developmental concerns (such as ASD autism spectrum disorder, developmental disabilties, etc.) is a therapeutic approach focused on understanding and changing behavior patterns to improve social, communication, and learning skills. ABA breaks down complex behaviors into smaller components and uses positive reinforcement techniques to teach new skills and behaviors, such as language development, self-help skills, and social interaction. Through structured interventions and systematic data collection, therapists identify the specific factors influencing behavior and tailor interventions to meet each individual's needs. ABA therapy aims to increase adaptive behaviors while reducing challenging behaviors, enhancing the individual's ability to function effectively in daily life and promoting overall well-being and independence.
