Behaviour analysis is not a therapy or a treatment approach, it is the understanding of behaviour.
However, therapies based on this science have garnered a wealth of evidence to show they are effective in helping people learn new skills, as well as reducing or eliminating engagement in behaviours that might be harmful to them or others.
Research in behaviour analysis is ongoing – here in Europe and around the world.
Every day we are learning new things about behaviour, as well as how we can use this information to help people reach their goals and improve the quality of their lives.
Because Behaviour Analysis is a science, all teaching and therapeutic approaches that are derived from the science are data based.
If you work with a Behaviour Analyst, you can expect to see him or her carefully observing behaviour and collecting data, and using this data to make decisions about what approaches to recommend and to determine whether those recommendations are working.
Although there is a wealth of research to show the effectiveness of behaviour analytic approaches, Behaviour Analysts realise that each individual is different and strategies need to be tailored to suit that individual’s needs. Data helps them do that.
