Applied behavior analysis, or ABA therapy, is an empirical method for changing inappropriate or inadequate behaviors that are often found in children with an autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. It teaches them to complete tasks by breaking the tasks down into small, easily achievable steps. The most improvement is seen in areas such as communication, making friends, completing tasks, waiting, and stating their needs.Learn more
The length of the ABA therapy will vary according to the child's level of development and their degree of need. Research has indicated that the most effective program lasts between one to three years. Programs of this length provided the most long-lasting improvement and the most positive gains. Focused treatments, on the other hand, deliver between 10 to 25 hours of ABA therapy and target a few specific areas.Learn more
