Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a type of therapy that focuses on improving specific behaviors such as social skills, adaptive learning skills, fine motor skills, communication, and the like. This is used as a therapeutic intervention for persons with autism and is effective specifically for children. It has been shown that ABA significantly improves behavior and skills with a corresponding decrease in the need for special services. Our facility offers Applied Behavior Analysis in Florida.
According to the Center for Autism, this therapy helps autistic clients improve their social interactions, maintain positive behaviors, and learn new skills. It can also help them control certain situations that usually induce negative behaviors. But ABA is not applicable only to children as it can also help aging adults cope with their deteriorating memory and strength. Thus, for young and old, ABA can assist individuals manage some of their lifestyle challenges that go along with mental and physical health conditions. A behavior analyst then works with the client and determines which behaviors require change, establish ways to measure changes and improvements, set goals to achieve, and decide whether or not further behavior modification is necessary.
