Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA therapy applies the understanding of how behavior works to real situations. The goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or prohibit effective learning. The methods of behavior analysis have been used and studied for decades. They have helped many kinds of learners gain different skills – from healthier lifestyles to learning a new language. In our situation, we apply ABA to help children with autism and related developmental disorders. We utilize it to aid in Increasing language and communication skills, as well as improving attention, focus, social skills, memory, and even academics in our clients. In addition, we apply ABA techniques to decrease problem behaviors. Positive reinforcement is one of the main strategies we implement here at Cusps and Capabilities, LLC. When a behavior is followed by something that is valued (a reward), a person is more likely to repeat that behavior. Over time, this encourages positive behavior change. Our therapist identify goal behavior. Each time the person uses the behavior or skill successfully, they get rewarded. The reward is meaningful to the individual. These Positive rewards encourage the continued use of the skill. Over time this leads to meaningful behavior change. Applied behavior analysis is the only evidence based treatment for ASD, and focuses on improving educational and socially significant behaviors. These behaviors often include tantrums, aggression, self-stimulatory and self-injurious behaviors. Cusps and Capabilities, LLC treats behaviors based on their function, applying the basic behavioral principles of reinforcement.
