Applied behavior analysis, or ABA therapy, is a proven method for changing or improving maladaptive behaviors in children diagnosed with behavioral disorders. By separating complicated tasks into small, achievable steps, children improve in areas such as their attention span, asking for help, following directions, communicating their needs, and waiting.Learn more
The ABA therapy program will be tailored to each child's needs and skill levels, so there's no predetermined length of time for the program. However, experience and research indicate that the most long-lasting results are achieved with a program duration of between one and three years across a broad spectrum of areas. Focused ABA therapy plans provide between 10 to 25 hours of therapy that target limited areas.Learn more
Most ABA therapy is provided in the familiar environments of the child’s school, home or community since maladaptive behaviors usually occur in these locations. Clinical settings are used sometimes, but the majority of therapy is given in the child's natural surroundings. This also enables the child to learn daily living skills that are unique to their lifestyle.Learn more
