ABA and PBS: the differences and similarities explained

In recent years, there has been some debate over whether Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is a considered a separate discipline from Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), or if PBS is simply an evolution from the current ABA practices.

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)

Virtually all scientifically supported interventions for autism spectrum disorders are based on the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). ABA is the application of learning theory to support meaningful changes in social behaviour. ABA has been proven to be effective as a treatment for kids with autism in teaching them new skills and building functional independence.
