WHAT IS ABA ANYWAY?
Let's get technical for a second. ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis. It is defined by Cooper, Heron, and Heward as "the science in which tactics derived from the principles of behavior are applied systematically to improve socially significant behavior, and experimentation is used to identify the variables responsible for behavior change.
In other words, ABA is the scientific approach to understanding behavior. Ultimately, we would like to establish and enhance socially significant behaviors.
Socialization is a deficit for individuals with autism. We strive to help provide opportunities for pretend-play, social language, and the ability to socialize with others through board games.
