Applied behavior analysts systematically measure specific client behaviors and then analyze how changes in the environment (such as specific arrangements of stimuli and consequences) can alter and positively influence those behaviors.

Based on the work of B. F. Skinner, this therapeutic system has become known as the only effective treatment for helping children and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities improve their social, motor, verbal, and reasoning skills. In addition, Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is increasingly being used in business and industrial settings (to teach precise job skills, enhance performance, and improve safety) and in educational environments (to teach basic academic skills, verbal reasoning, physical movement, social skills, and more).

Over several decades of research, the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA) has developed a wide range of ethical and empirically validated techniques for teaching new behaviors and skills, while eliminating those that may get in the way of learning and overall quality of life. Applied behavior analysts work in group homes, schools, mental health agencies, hospitals, businesses, and as independent consultants.
