What is Applied Behavior Analysis? [We Break it Down]

What is Applied Behavior Analysis? The Deron School Answers

Does your child have autism spectrum disorder? If so, you may be wondering: what is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and how does it work?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a scientific approach to understanding behavior. It is based on the principles of learning and motivation, and it focuses on changing behavior using reinforcement. ABA is an effective treatment for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and it is used by many schools and therapists who work with children with ASD.

The Deron School uses ABA to help our students reach their full potential. We believe that all children can learn, regardless of their diagnosis or disability. Our trained staff members use positive reinforcement to encourage desired behaviors and discourage unwanted ones. This helps our students learn new skills and progress in academics, social skills, and communication.

The Importance of ABA Therapy for Students with Special Needs

ABA therapy is a type of treatment that helps people with ASD improve their communication and social skills. It is based on the principle that all behavior has a function or purpose. ABA therapy can be used to teach new skills, such as how to make eye contact or ask for help. It can also help people with ASD learn how to cope with anxiety or manage their emotions.

ABA therapy is usually provided by a team of therapists who work closely with the person with ASD and their family. ABA therapy aims to help special needs students lead a more independent and fulfilling life.

The Deron School’s ABA Program

Our ABA Program is based on the guidelines set forth by the Behavior Analysis Certification Board. This includes observation, data collection, and individualized programming to align with our school’s mission: helping each student reach their greatest level of independence and achievement.
