Behavior analysis is the science of behavior. ABA is the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree (Baer, Wolf & Risley, 1968/1987; Sulzer-Azaroff & Mayer, 1991).

Recovery

Recovery from autism is still a controversial topic, and many in the autism field are still afraid to discuss it. We at CARD have seen recovery for decades, and we make it happen for some of the individuals who we treat. We are not the only ones. Treatment providers all over the country, who have been doing top-quality ABA treatment for individuals with autism for a minimum of 30 hours per week for two or more years, have been recovering individuals for years.
