The present research investigated the relations among praise behaviors, understanding of the applied behavior analysis (ABA), and years of experiences. The participants were 68 teachers who are working as a teacher in charge of a normal class in public elementary schools. The results showed that the more the teachers had knowledge of ABA, the more they provided praise to their students. Experience teachers showed less knowledge of ABA and praise behaviors relative to new young teachers. These results suggest that it is important to provide more effective methods to spread ABA knowledge for teachers.
