In today’s world, with the cost of education, healthcare, and clinical service provision continuing to rise, the use of evidence-based practices to address challenging behavior in an effective, but efficient manner, is paramount. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) offers educators, clinicians, business owners, school and health care administrators, and families a valuable approach to instruction, personnel management, and treatment of challenging behaviors that may impede successful performance in daily activities and routines. This approach is based on the careful use of behavioral assessment methodologies, empirically-driven measurement and analysis, and the selection and implementation of function-based treatment strategies.
