  ABA is the use of these techniques and principles to bring about a meaningful and positive change in behavior. Analysts began working with young children with autism and related disorders in the 1960s. Early techniques often involved adults directing most of the instructions. Some allowed the child to take the lead. Since that time, a wide variety of ABA techniques have been developed for building useful skills in learners with autism – from toddlers through adulthood. These techniques can be used in structured situations such as a classroom lesson as well as in “everyday” situations such as family dinnertime or the neighborhood playground. Some ABA therapy sessions involved one-on-one interaction between the behavior analysis and the participant. Group instruction can also prove useful.
