What Is ABA therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy works to increase good behaviors and decrease undesirable behavior in children with autism spectrum disorder. It uses positive reinforcement to encourage behavioral changes and no reaction to inappropriate responses. Each program meets the needs of the individual child. Treatment goals may include social skills, language, personal care and academic skills.

What is the typical length of ABA therapy?

Intensive, long-term therapy lasting for up to three years works best in most cases. Therapy can last from 10 to 40 hours per week with each session ranging between one to five hours. Qualified therapists adjust the schedule to meet the child's skill level, unique needs and family situation, but ultimately, the child's progress determines the treatment's duration.

Programs in schools also let children receive help in a natural setting where they can work on their social skills. Therapy in a center also allows for socialization in a controlled setting.
