Behavior analysis is the science and study of behavior. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) has been shown to be effective in a wide variety of areas including parent training, substance abuse treatment, anxiety, depression, dementia management, and occupational safety among others. ABA is perhaps best known as a treatment model for individuals with Autism and intellectual disabilities. With early intervention as children and appropriate education, training and support as adults, all people with Autism and intellectual disabilities can lead valued and satisfying lives in their communities. OLBAB licenses Behavior Analysts and certifies Assistant Behavior Analysts to work in Oklahoma.
