Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapy (ABA) can teach skills and change behaviors.
However, his techniques have been studied over time and modified by therapists so that there are significantly different versions of behavioral therapy today.
The best ABA therapies of today bring together a combination of social and emotional engagement as well as behaviors.
