What is ABA?
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a positive approach to behavior modification. Methods based on the principles of behavior are used to both increase and decrease behaviors. Some of the strategies are listed below.
Antecedent Interventions: These are preventative measures taken in an attempt to prevent behaviors from occurring. Some examples include:
Safety caps on household cleansers and chemicals.
Making sure to get home before nap time to avoid the tired toddler tantrums.
Reinforcement: Rewarding behaviors after the behavior occurs.
Praise and hugs
