Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Services

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapeutic support service based on the study of behavior and learning. Using empirical methods and relying on research, ABA can be used to shape and develop many different types of behavior.  Rearranging the environment, providing useful accommodations, and maximizing natural reinforcement are key in providing high-quality, humane, helpful services to individuals. Although behavior principles can be applied to almost any behavior in order to change it, providers of ABA should always keep in mind 1) the client’s own goals and preferences, 2) social significance (SELF significance for the client!), and 3) autonomy of the client, particularly of those who may not be able to vocally advocate for themselves. Results of ABA services can be life-changing, and can be damaging when not provided ethically and with cultural competence. As a wise philosopher (the creator of Spider-Man) once said, “With great power comes great responsibility.”
