Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) uses the principles of behavior science to increase positive behaviors while eliminating negative behaviors for long-term individual development. ABA therapy programs have long been established as effective approaches to increase appropriate behaviors and decrease problem behaviors for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD; National Autism Center, 2009; Wong et al., 2014). The result of these therapies is to promote general development to age-appropriate behaviors, as well as to teach a variety of childhood life skills: communication, socialization, adaptation, feeding, and toilet training, among many others.
