Applied Behavior Analysts (ABA) are therapists who help individuals improve, increase, and maintain behaviors needed for everyday life. They focus on a wide range of behaviors including communication, social skills, academics, and even hygiene to name a few. The idea is that ABA therapists help individuals adapt in various situations and learn how to transfer skills from one situation to another.
