Why is ABA therapy used?
Applied behavior analysis, or ABA therapy, is a data-driven method of improving specific behaviors that are unique to children who have developmental issues such as autism spectrum disorder or ASD. By reducing complex tasks to small, easy-to-understand tasks, children are able to complete them and eliminate some of their maladaptive behaviors. ABA therapy is effective in areas such as asking for help, increasing attention spans, communicating needs, making friends, following instructions, waiting patiently and more.Learn more
What's the expected duration of an ABA therapy program?
Each child will be evaluated to determine their level of need, and a program will be designed that specifically addresses their needs. Experience and research indicate that a program of between one and three years' duration is the most effective and has the best long-term results. Focused treatments provide between 10 to 25 hours of specialized treatments in areas that are the most important for the child.Learn more
Does ABA therapy have to be conducted in a clinical setting?
Clinical settings are sometimes used for ABA therapy, but more often, the sessions are held in natural settings such as the home, within the community or the classroom. This enables the child to develop appropriate behaviors in settings that are specific to them and to independently interact with their natural environment, which is the location of most maladaptive behaviors.Learn more
How will my child benefit from ABA therapy?
If your child has maladaptive behaviors in the areas of adaptive living, communication, and social interaction, then ABA therapy can improve their function in these areas. The objective of ABA therapy is to increase your child's ability to independently interact with their natural environments and increase their social function within the family.Learn more
