What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy?
The most common therapy for children with autism is ABA therapy. It’s the longest-standing, evidence-based approach that often results in short- and long-term gains for children. ABA therapy breaks down desired behaviors, such as getting ready for bed, into small and manageable steps. Each step a child masters results in a small reward for him or her. Every child with autism is unique, so ABA therapy is flexible. Programs focus on what skills each child needs to help with make them more independent now and in the future.Learn more
How long will my child be in Applied Behavior Analysis therapy?
ABA programs focus on goals, not timelines. Each child, and the family, has certain goals, but therapy typically lasts for at least one year and up to three years. Most children have therapy a set number of hours per week. The therapist will evaluate your child's progress periodically and adjust the length of therapy if needed.Learn more
Can my child have ABA therapy at home?
Yes, and also at school or in the community. If your child starts therapy at an early age, which is recommended, a familiar home setting is often best. If he or she needs to learn self-care, like using the toilet or brushing his or her teeth, it is easier to have them learn at home. School and community programs are ideal if your child needs to learn to socialize with their peers or learn how to behave appropriately in a classroom setting.Learn more
What are the advantages of ABA therapy?
Many major organizations endorse ABA therapy to help children learn communication and socialization skills. If you’re concerned about its effectiveness, both the CDC and the Office of the Surgeon General say ABA therapy is beneficial for children with autism. It can help them lead productive, independent lives, which is what all parents want for their kids, regardless of the challenges they may face.Learn more
