What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis is a science focused on the study of how behaviors are learned, maintained, or decreased. ABA Therapy services are available in most states and in many countries outside of the United States. In order to receive ABA Therapy through insurance, typically an Autism diagnosis is required (this varies across states). Some states require licensure of ABA providers, and some do not.
There are 3 levels of ABA providers: Registered Behavior Technician, Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst, and Board Certified Behavior Analyst.
ABA Therapy can be utilized across the lifespan in a variety of settings (hospitals, schools, home based, community integration, clinic based, etc.).
ABA Therapy services can include assessment, skill acquisition, behavior reduction, general consultation, caregiver support, training and coaching, clinical collaboration, and clinical supervision.
