What you need to know about ABA therapy

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is a form of therapy that attempts to encourage and change certain behaviors, particularly in children diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It works by using positive reinforcement as a reward system when desired behavior is demonstrated. ABA therapy can improve many different behaviors, including asking for help, communicating needs and emotions, and forming interpersonal relationships.

How long will my child be in ABA therapy?

How long your child receives ABA therapy depends on a variety of factors, including the needs and goals that are important to your family. However, research suggests that children with ASD who receive high-intensity ABA services for a period of one to three years have a higher chance of meeting their specific treatment goals. There is also a form of targeted ABA therapy sessions which consist of focused goals and 10-25 hours of therapy.

Is at-home ABA therapy possible?

ABA therapy can be provided in at home, school, in the community, or in a clinical setting. From research, we've learned that natural settings (home, school, the community) are more efficient in comparison to a clinical setting. These natural environments allow children increased opportunities to learn daily living skills that can be applied to everyday life.
