What is ABA therapy?

ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis. It is used to help children with autism learn desirable skills and behaviors. ABA uses rewards to encourage them to master each step of a complex task. This evidence-based approach can also help reduce or eliminate problematic behaviors. Your child will learn more appropriate behaviors to help them get what they need or want, which will reduce your child’s frustration. Children can learn how to communicate better, manage their daily hygiene, and perform skills that can help them do better in school. Therapists tailor their approach to meet each child’s unique needs.
