Applied behavioral analysis, or ABA therapy, is an evidence-based type of therapy that changes or improves specific behaviors, primarily in children with an autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. It improves maladaptive behaviors and teaches children how to independently interact with their environment. Targeted behaviors usually include asking for help, communicating their needs, completing a task, following directions, making friends, and learning to be patient.Learn more
The length of each ABA therapy program will be unique to the child and will depend on their level of development and the extent of their maladaptive behaviors. Extensive research with ASD children has shown that between one and three years of intensive therapy provides the most significant improvement in multiple areas. Targeted treatments of between 10 and 25 hours that focus on a few specific areas can also be used to complete a ABA therapy program.Learn more
ABA therapy is conducted across a variety of venues that include the home, the clinic, the school, and the community. However, home, school, and the community usually provide the most dramatic and lasting improvement since maladaptive behaviors usually occur in these areas. Conducting ABA therapy in familiar environments also increases the level of independent interaction as well as opportunities to learn social skills that are unique to the child's lifestyle.Learn more
ABA therapy aims to increase a child's ability to independently interact with their environment while it minimizes maladaptive behaviors. By developing programs that target socially significant skills, the child learns to function better within their family and their environment.Learn more
