Certain difficult or harmful behaviors present in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be difficult to address. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has been scientifically proven to assist in improving or changing a child’s behaviors. This evidence-based technique teaches children how to take complicated tasks and break them down into smaller, more discrete steps so that the task may be successfully completed. This method has been utilized to teach children affected by ASD how to communicate needs, make friends, wait, follow directions, complete a task and ask for assistance.Learn more
If your child is in need of intensive ABA therapy, you can expect it to take at least one to three years. Children who undergo this therapy for this length of time typically see significant improvements within many different areas. If your child undergoes focused ABA therapy, it will most likely take 10 to 25 hours and focus on a few specific areas.Learn more
