hi, I think they're the same thing A.B.A is Applied Behaviour Analysis- which is breaking down skills into small achievable steps. Teaching in discrete trials using differential reinforcement. I believe that I.B.I 'Intensive Behaviour Therapy' is the same teaching methods used with a minimum of 20hrs. A.B.A therapy also recommends a high number of hours for best results, although it can be done in fewer hours, obviously less progress will be made. I hope this makes sense- basically- they're the same.
