Recently the University College Applied Behavior Analysis professional development program was approved for Veterans training.
Applied behavior analysis is data based and has the best scientifically demonstrated track record for teaching skills and replacing problem behavior with
appropriate social skills. ABA achieves results and focuses on behavior in its own right as a target for change. The target behavior is directly observed
and measured in the real-life environments; and focuses on outcome rather than process. Behavior analysts continuously measure behavior to determine if
progress is being made. The positive outcomes are outstanding.
Experience indicates that intensive programs with ABA at their core are the most promising for teaching and maintaining skills.
