What is ABA?

ABA or Applied Behaviour Analysis is a science. The goal of ABA interventions is to improve socially significant behaviours using strategies that are derived from the principles of behaviour. Formal interventions that have a foundation in ABA (interventions or strategies with a goal of changing behaviour) should be supervised by a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). Supervision of ABA interventions requires ongoing analysis of progress and the implementation of revisions based on observable, measurable behaviour change.
