ABA breaks down skills into discrete tasks that are taught and structured systematically. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) focuses on using positive approaches to increase skills and decrease problem behaviors, all with the goal of helping individuals strengthen relationships and function as independently as possible in their home and community.

Methodologies of ABA

There are many different ways in which ABA can be used including:

  • Discrete Trial Training (DTT)
  • Naturalistic Environment Training (NET)
  • Verbal Behavior (VB)
  • Relational Frame Theory (RFT)
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  • Pivotal Response Training (PRT)
