Empowering People, Launching lives
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a science based on learning and behaviour. It is a set of principles that can help teach important skills when personalised to the individual.
ABA is evidence based, using reflective teaching and tracking progress to celebrate every achievement through fun and motivating learning. ABA helps us to understand how behaviour works and how the environment affects it. By applying this to learning, ABA can help with increasing language and communication as well as academic and self-help skills.
Closely linked with ABA, Verbal Behaviour (VB) refers to a view that language is a behaviour which you learn and acquire in the same way as other skills. B.F Skinner’s work laid the foundations of VB. There is a large body of research supporting this analysis of language and its application to teaching children and young adults with autism.
