Applied Behavior Analysis Is a Therapy That Can

Pave The Road To Better Behavior

It is often referred to as simply ABA. This is a scientific approach to learning and behavior that helps us understand the child’s behavior, the impact of their surroundings, and how the child can learn. The goal of Applied Behavior Analysis, or ABA, is to help the child develop helpful behaviors and to reduce any harmful behavior so we can improve learning.

Parents already know which behaviors have presented a problem and are looking for solutions. ABA Therapy can provide solutions and focuses on improving the child’s ability to communicate as well as their language skills. The good news for parents is that this can be done at home, at School, or a therapy center. ABA Therapy is flexible enough to do in a group or one-on-one setting to teach the skills that children need to function well in the world we live in.

Applied Behavior Analysis has been a part of the tools available for therapists for decades. The results can be validated by therapists who have been using ABA which should bring hope to many parents who might be frustrated with the lack of attention, poor social skills, and their child’s inability to focus. Parents are concerned because they see how their behavior can impact their academic performance. It is good for parents to be aware of the strategies used to improve behavior so they can reinforce positive behavior at home.

Strategies used can be a combination of reinforcing positive behavior and following what is referred to as Antecedent, Behavior, and Consequence. A future article will define what this entails. What is important to note in this article is that we understand the importance of tailoring a good ABA program for each child. This included creating a plan of action and then constantly measuring results so adjustments can be made if necessary. You can be assured that Childhood Behavior Center will design the best possible ABA therapy for your child.
