What is ABA therapy?

Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy teaches children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) skills by breaking down each skill into smaller, more manageable parts. Even something as simple as brushing your teeth takes multiple steps. By offering the child a small reward for completing each step, he or she learns to complete the entire task. Children receive individualized treatment plans depending on their age and abilities.

Does ABA therapy take years to complete?

Children can be in ABA Therapy for up to three years. If a child's program is set up to work on a limited number of improvements, they may have 10 to 25 hours of ABA therapy a week. Children who have more complex needs, may need up to 30 hours a week of therapy.

Is in-home ABA therapy therapy the best option?

In-home ABA therapy is the best option if your child needs to learn skills he or she will use at home. It is easier for a child to learn to brush his or her teeth or sit down to dinner in his natural environment. Therapy at a clinic or at school can also have its advantages, especially for children who need to learn skills they can use in school or in the community.

What Can My Child Gain From ABA therapy?

ABA therapy will help your child function better in a variety of settings. Depending on what you want therapy to address, your child may learn to communicate their needs better instead of acting out. He or she may also learn daily living skills and become more independent, making them feel better about themselves.
