What is Applied Behavior Analysis?

Technical Definition.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the science in which tactics derived from the principles of behavior are applied systematically to improve socially significant behavior and experimentation is used to identify the variables responsible for the behavior change.
Cooper, Heron, and Heward (2007)

Simply Put.

ABA is a science used to determine why unwanted behaviors are occurring and how those behaviors can be effectively reduced.  Appropriate replacement behaviors will then be incorporated into the learners’ skill set by way of ABA therapy.
