BEHAVIOR WHAT IT IS:

Behavior can be overt – publicly observable eg chewing , scratching , running. Behavior can also be covert: privately observable to only the individual doing the behavior such as thinking and feeling. We can’t verify anyone’s thoughts or private events. Thus the main focus of ABA (analysis) is overt behavior and environmental change.

Behavior is always related to conditions.
