Applied Behaviour Analysis ABA

Where necessary and appropriate ABA intensive therapy can be proposed to children diagnosed with Autism with an independent ABA therapists who work, in close collaboration with the center. Regular meetings with parents and the ABA therapist are organised at the center to ensure a holistic support for the progress of the child.


What is ABA?

As a science, ABA can be described as a systematic approach to understanding behavior of social interest. The principles of behavior analysis began their development from early work on respondent and operant conditioning. In respondent conditioning, behavior is elicited through a conditioned or unconditioned stimulus.

ABA is defined as the « process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behavior to a meaningful degree and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement in behavior » (Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968).

All behaviors, whether they are being observed or taught, can be broken down into 3 parts;

  • Antecedent (A) - what triggered a behavior or what happens before the behavior,

  • Behavior (B) - the behavior itself,

  • Consequence (C) - what happens after the behavior.


ABA & Autism:

One of the many interventions for autism is ABA – Applied Behaviour Analysis. ABA therapy was first developed in the 1960s by psychologist Ivar Lovaas, PhD, at the University of California; Los Angeles (UCLA), ABA therapy for autism makes use of the idea that when people affected by autism are rewarded for a behavior, they are likely to repeat that behavior. In ABA treatment, the therapist gives the child a motive, like a question or a request to sit down, along with the correct response. The therapist uses attention, praise or an actual incentive like toys or food to reward the child for repeating the right answer or completing the task; any other response is ignored.

ABA therapy for Autism is an intervention that strives to decrease excesses in the child’s behaviours and diminish the skill deficits that are being caused by these behavioural excesses therefore building up a skill repertoire for the child.



Centre-Based Interventions:

Centre-Based Interventions are one-to-one or small-groups  (2/3 people) sessions for children and adolescents that take place at the Evaluation  Centre rather than in the home environment.


Advantages of Centre-Based Interventions

  • When appropriate, patients are matched by age and level of functioning for socialization opportunities and peer play dates.

  • The Centre offers a perfect setting for generalization, allowing patients to use acquired skills in a new way, at a new place.

  • Patients have opportunities to engage with new learning materials.

  • The level of participation and focus is higher at the centre due to a reduction in distractions (e.g., V-games, TV, domestic pets etc).
