About ABA


 

Effective, evidence based approach to treating Autism with a vast body of research for the past 30 years.

"Applied Behaviour Analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviours..." 

(Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968; Sulzer-Azaroff & Mayer, 1991)

ABA is now at the forefront of interventions for Autism, with a mature body of scientific knowledge, established standards for practice, distinct methods of service, recognised experience and educational requirements for practice and a strict ethical code.

Briefly, professionals in ABA engage in the specific and comprehensive use of principles of learning in order to address behavioural needs of widely varying individuals in diverse settings.

Examples of the applications of ABA include:

  • building the skills and achievements of children in school settings;
  • enhancing the development, abilities, and choices of children and adults with different kinds of disabilities and developmental disorders (e.g. ASD);
  • augmenting performance, satisfaction level and, ultimately, improving the quality of life for the individuals in any learning or work setting.
