Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is the application of behavioral science to improve socially important behavior. Its early roots come from psychology and behavior analysis, which extends back to the early 20th century. ABA has effectively been used to help individuals in a variety of settings. Examples include autism spectrum disorders, developmental disabilities, gerontology, education, and industry. GSAPP at Rutgers offers academic, service, and research opportunities in ABA.
