Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has been used to promote learning and change of behavior using basic principles of behavior analysis. One of the most common applications of ABA is in the field of Autism and Developmental Disabilities. There are individuals who strongly advocate for bringing change through ABA, while there are others who are strongly opposed to it.
In this assignment, you will describe both sides of the argument. Find journals or blog entries that seek to strengthen or demean ABA in the field of Autism and other related disabilities. After having listed both arguments, write your perspective on the topic. Based on what you have read and what you have described, do you find merit on either argument? Is there a different point of view that wasn’t discussed that would sway you one way or another?
