Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA)

To do your own Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy at home:


Typically a small kid-sized table and 2 kid-sized chairs are used for ABA therapy.

Children are given very small treats as “reinforcers” each time they participate / say the word / follow the command / get the right answer. I like to use very small pieces of dried fruit. (for example: cut raisins in half or into quarters) I like to wear the treats in a fanny pack or apron.
