Behavior analysis has been used to improve teaching and increase learning across content areas, grade levels, and student populations for over 60 years. It provides a scientific approach to designing, implementing, and evaluating instruction based on analyzing interactions between what the teacher does and student learning.
Education is one of many applied behavior analysis (ABA) subspecialties. To learn more about ABA and its application in other subspecialties, check out the About Behavior Analysis web page.
