ABA stands for the name of an evidence-based method called applied behavior analysis, and it's used to help people diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) develop socially significant behaviors. It can improve behaviors like communicating emotions and needs, developing interpersonal relationships, following directions, and paying attention to a task. ABA therapists use positive reinforcement to encourage positive behaviors and reduce unwanted or harmful behavior.Learn more
ABA programs are customized to each person's needs, skills, and preferences, so there isn't a specific program length that works for everyone. Research has established that intensive and long-term therapy shows the most positive outcomes for children with ASD. These intensive programs typically last one to three years. There is a more focused approach as well, aimed at improving fewer behaviors through fixed sessions totalling 10-25 hours of therapy.Learn more
ABA therapy services can be provided in most types of settings, including school, home, in a clinic, or in the community. Teaching skills in settings where children naturally use them, such as at school, home, and in the community, is usually the most efficient since it allows for increased opportunities to provide meaningful learning opportunities and feedback that children can apply to real-world settings.Learn more
ABA therapy can help children develop positive behavioral skills that can allow them to better and more independently manage school and social experiences. This includes deficits in communication and language, self-care activities, and motor skills that can negatively affect daily functioning. By working with a child's current skill level, an ABA therapist can develop a custom program that targets specific goals that are important to the child and their family.Learn more
