The Sciences of Behavior Analysis and Nutrition Combined
What is ABA?
Applied Behavior Analysis is a scientific approach to human behavior. A Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) is a nationally recognized certification that those with an advanced degree (Master's or Doctorate) in ABA course work can attain. This distinction allows the title holder to work with clients to analyze and enhance socially significant behaviors. Through identifying strengths and deficits, and the application and replication of treatment packages with the use of data collection, a BCBA can use their skills to effect changes in another's life. Traditionally, BCBAs work with individuals that are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders. Currently however, the field is expanding to include other areas of human behavior, such as health and nutrition. That is the focus of The Behavior Chef.
