What is ABA?

ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis, the process of applying the principles of behavior that occur in the natural world to teach helpful behaviors and reduce problem behaviors, thereby improving an individual’s quality of life. These same principles can be applied to groups of individuals to help solve important problems in society as well, such as reducing land fill needs through developing recycling and reusing programs and behaviors and improving safety at work through developing policies and behaviors that reinforce safety practice in the work place.
