ABA defined by Cooper, Heron and Howard in Applied Behavior Analysis, (1987) is:

"...the science in which procedures derived from the principles of behavior are systematically applied to improve socially significant behavior to a meaningful degree and to demonstrate experimentally that the procedures employed were responsible for the improvement in behavior." (p. 14).

ABA makes meaningful and effective behavioral and developmental changes in children diagnosed with autism and related disorders through the use of different procedures that have been shown to cause improvements in behavior. ABA uses reinforcement in structured and natural environment to teach skills that range from simple to complex.
