    ABA Therapy Description:
    Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy encourages positive behaviors and discourages negative behaviors to improve a variety of skills. The child’s progress is tracked and measured. ABA is based on the science and learning of behavior, which includes general “laws” of behavior. The therapy is also used to increase language, communication skills, attention, focus, social skills, memory, and academics. ABA techniques focus on antecedents and consequences. When a positive behavior is followed by something that is valued to the child, such as “a reward”, that behavior is more likely to occur in the future.
