Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. Behavior analysis helps us to understand:

Positive Reinforcement

Positive reinforcement is one of the main strategies used in ABA.

When a behavior is followed by something that is valued (a reward), a person is more likely to repeat that behavior. Over time, this encourages positive behavior change.

First, the therapist identifies a goal behavior. Each time the person uses the behavior or skill successfully, they get a reward. The reward is meaningful to the individual – examples include praise, a toy or book, watching a video, access to playground or other location, and more.

Positive rewards encourage the person to continue using the skill. Over time this leads to meaningful behavior change.

Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence
Understanding antecedents (what happens before a behavior occurs) and consequences (what happens after the behavior) is another important part of any ABA program.

What Does an ABA Program Involve? / ¿En qué consiste un programa ABA?

Good ABA programs are not “one size fits all.” ABA should not be viewed as a canned set of drills. Rather, each program is written to meet the needs of the individual learner.

Los buenos programas de ABA no son “de talla única”. ABA no debe verse como un conjunto de simulacros enlatados. Por el contrario, cada programa está escrito para satisfacer las necesidades de cada alumno.

The goal of any ABA program is to help each person work on skills that will help them become more independent and successful in the short term as well as in the future.

El objetivo de cualquier programa ABA es ayudar a cada persona a trabajar en habilidades que los ayudarán a ser más independientes y exitosos a corto plazo y en el futuro.
