What is ABA? Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a type of therapy often used in the treatment and education of children with autism spectrum disorders. To date, it is the most promising, evidence-based treatment available to children and their families. There are many misconceptions about ABA, including the notion that ABA is synonymous with discrete trial training (DTT). Discrete trial training is but one form of ABA; other ABA-based interventions include the use of positive reinforcement, behavioral momentum, token economies, and differential attention/reinforcement. Indeed, it is more accurate to think of ABA as a class of treatment, including multiple examples (e.g., positive reinforcement, differential attention), as opposed to one example of ABA (i.e., discrete trial training). KidsLink behavioral consultants have received training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). They can customize a program for your child.
