Behaviour analysis is the scientific study of behaviour that focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place for children diagnosed with Autism and other related developmental disorders. It involves breaking down skills into component parts and, through repetition, reinforcement, and encouragement, by everyone that interacts with the child in order to help them learn new skills.
These principles and strategies bring about meaningful and positive change in an individual’s behaviour. ABA is the application of these principles of learning and motivation to the solution of problems of social significance. Family focused goals and priorities are the key foundations to help a child overcome behavioural issues and lead a quality life.
