Why Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)?
ABA is one of the most researched upon method of intervention. Based on the Learning Theory formulated by John B. Watson and Ivan Pavlov, behaviours are learned and therefore can be unlearned.
Effective ABA intervention should be individualized and systematically carried out. Programmes should be comprehensive and constantly reviewed and generalized. We encourage intensive intervention for adequate practice and meaningful learning to take place.
HOW ABA BENEFITS
Generalizes behaviours and responses across different situations and people.Reduces disruptive behaviours (e.g. aggression, self-injury, self-stimulation etc.)
Teaches new and functional skills (e.g. independence, social communication skills etc.)
Maintains behaviours (e.g. self-control, self-monitoring procedures.)
Increases positive behaviours (e.g. eye contact, social interaction, responding etc.)
