Applied Behavior Analysis focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place. Positive reinforcement is one such principle. When a behavior is followed by some sort of reward, the behavior is more likely to be repeated. ABA uses these techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior. Dr. Alston trains the parents to perform ABA at home. These sessions are not ABA treatments, but training and counseling to help you do ABA at home with your child.
