I Love ABA!

Welcome to my blog all about Applied Behavior Analysis!

This blog is about my experiences, thoughts, and opinions on ABA. My career as an ABA provider is definitely a passion and a joy, and I love what I do.

Most people think what I do is about using rewards and incentive to get children to stop inappropriate behaviors. That's not really what ABA is about.

I like to describe what I do as manipulating the environment in such a way that the child has no reason to maintain challenging, aggressive behaviors and every reason to adapt appropriate social behaviors.
Or put another way:

"If you wish to modify your child's behavior, you have to change yours".

Your behavior is what will ultimately determine the success of your child's ABA program.


  1. Your posts pass such a positive message!


  2. This is a viewpoint that I wish a lot more of my kiddo's parents had! Very true.

    1. I agree! Thats why I tell this to as many families as I can.
