Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy is the most highly touted treatment for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It uses positive reinforcement to teach children skills, with complex skills being broken down into smaller steps. Disruptive behavior isn't rewarded, encouraging the child to learn appropriate behaviors. It's been shown most effective for children under age five, but it's appropriate for children of all ages and adults.Learn more
The intensity of ABA therapy over the course of several years surprises many parents. Naturally, the number of hours will vary depending on the child's developmental level, but 25 to 30 hours a week is normal. Your therapist can talk to you about the time you need to invest to maximize your child's learning experience.Learn more
Early intervention is best; often before the child starts school. Many children receive therapy in their home, where they can practice skills, like eating dinner, in a natural setting. Some children go to centers where they receive ABA therapy after in-home therapy ends. This can help them get used to going outside the home to learn before they begin school.Learn more
Your therapist will perform an initial assessment with you and your child and develop a treatment plan to cover skills that your child lacks. The treatment plan will help your child reach their full potential. Individualized plans may cover daily living skills, communication skills, academic readiness and/or social skills.Learn more
