ABA Therapy is effective for children and adults within the spectrum in a variety of settings, including schools, workplaces, homes, and clinics. It has also been shown that consistent ABA can significantly improve behaviors and skills and decrease the need for special services.

ABA Theraphy focuses on the social significance of the behavior studied. For example, the applied study of eating behavior in individuals who eat too little or too much, trying to change such behavior so that it is more acceptable to the persons involved.
