ABA or Applied Behavior Analysis is a field of behavioral science that is specifically applied to human behavior. Individuals who practice ABA are called BCBAs or Board Certified Behavior Analysts. Additionally, there are also BCaBAs (Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts) and RBTs (Registered Behavior Technicians) who work under the close supervision of a BCBA to provide behavior analytic services.
ABA provides a scientifically based way to support skill acquisition across a variety of populations, both typically developing and those with neurodevelopmental disorders, young and old.

Disclaimer: Please DO NOT IMPLEMENT any of these programs without first communicating with your APTS Behavior Specialist and obtaining training, coaching, and supervision of the implementation. This is for student and parent protection. While these are all reinforcement based strategies they do require student specific adaptations to be successful. Additionally, the presence of any new intervention can effect other interventions and patterns of behavior and needs to be done carefully with supervision of a licensed and board certified behavior analyst (LBA/BCBA). You can use these as examples of skills which can be taught, as well as the general procedure for many of these programs. If there are skills you wish to work on with your student, please contact your Behavior Specialist/Analyst to have more student specific programs developed to meet the student’s needs.
