Applied behavior analysis Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Applied behavior analysis (ABA), previously known as behavior modification, is the application of behaviorism that modifies human behaviors, especially as part of a learning or treatment process. Behavior analysts focus on the observable relationship of behavior to the environment without resort to "hypothetical constructs". By functionally assessing the relationship between a targeted behavior and the environment, the methods of ABA can be used to change that behavior.
