What does ABA therapy treat?

Applied Behavior Analysis (also known as ABA) is an evidence-based therapeutic technique used to either improve or change behaviors commonly present in children who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It educates children in how to break down complicated skills and tasks into smaller steps. It has been proven to teach children how to communicate needs, wait, make friends, ask for assistance, follow instructions and perform tasks.

How long does ABA therapy take?

Children receiving intensive services tend to have the most success when they receive those services over a period of one to three years. This is the timeframe necessary for children to make significant skills across multiple domains. Children who receive focused ABA treatment services tend to receive them for 10-25 hours and focus on mastering just a few domains.

Should ABA therapy take place in the home or school?

While clinic-based settings work, this type of treatment is most effective when it is done within a child’s home, school or community. This allows for the child to learn new skills within his or her natural environment, making it more likely that the child will be able to apply these skills in those places after therapy has been concluded.
