Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
We provide Behavior Analysis services in-home and at our centers.
What is Applied Behavior Analysis?
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a research based, scientific method that began with the work of B.F. Skinner. The science measures observable behavior. It looks at what occurs before a behavior (antecedent) and what happens after a behavior (consequence). In addition, the methods of ABA are applied by breaking down skills into simple steps and teaching each step-in succession. Skills are taught with the use of prompting to assist learning. A correct response is followed by positive reinforcement which increases the likelihood that a behavior or response will occur more often in the future. HHBS uses Errorless Learning to decrease frustration and make teaching and learning a fun activity.
