Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is based on the principles of learning which apply to all people, not just children with autism. It is a scientific approach to understanding behaviour. ABA refers to a set of principles that focus on how behaviours change, or are affected by the environment, as well as how learning takes place. Every behaviour and skill that we all learn is a result of the same processes used in ABA!
When we first meet your child, we will use an assessment to identify your child’s current skills and skill deficits, and then develop an individualised set of programs to break down priority skills into smaller, easy to learn steps. Then we will continue to increase the complexity of these programs until they have met their short and long term goals. Learn even more about ABA in this blog.
