What's the definition of ABA therapy?
ABA therapy stands for applied behavioral analysis and is an empirical method for improving behaviors that are specific to children with ASD, or autism spectrum disorder. Specific behavior areas include asking for help, communicating needs, completing a task, making friends, following directions, and being patient. Children are taught to reduce complex tasks to several simple steps, which improves their self-confidence and their self-esteem, in turn reducing the incidence of maladaptive behaviors.Learn more
How long does the ABA therapy program take?
The length of time needed for the program will vary according to the child's level of development, their level of social skills, and the degree of their maladaptive behaviors. Usually, programs last between one and three years and are effective across multiple domains. Focused treatments provide between 10 and 25 hours of treatments and target specific areas that need improvement.Learn more
Can ABA therapy be done at home or within a certain environment?
Although ABA therapy is occasionally conducted in a clinical setting, it's usually done in the child's natural environment, such as at home, school, or in the community. These venues provide the most opportunities for the child to learn socially acceptable skills within their natural environments, and the child learns methods of independent interaction that are specific to their lifestyle.Learn more
How do I Know if ABA therapy will work for my child?
