What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a science devoted to the understanding and improvement of human behaviour. ABA focuses on objectively defined behaviours of social significance and interventions are centred on improving these behaviours.
ABA therapy is the most widely researched intervention for autism. With 40 years of scientific research on Applied Behaviour Analysis, it’s a structured, scientific approach that improves social skills, communication, self-care and learning skills.
If you’re a parent of a child with learning disabilities or autism, you may be struggling to manage your child’s behaviour at home.
Or perhaps you’re going through the process of a diagnosis, and feeling overwhelmed with deciding on the right treatment for your child.
ABA is often considered the best treatment for Autism due to it being the most comprehensive and extensive research supporting the effectiveness of early intervention.
Early research (Lovass et al; 1987) investigated the benefits of implementing the principles of ABA. They found profound differences between children being taught using ABA methodology in IQ and the degree of inclusion in mainstream educational settings compared with two control groups.
Our team are highly focused on ensuring all children get the education they deserve within mainstream schools. We are passionate about inclusive education so that all pupils can thrive.
