What is ABA therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based therapeutic method used to improve or change behaviors in children affected with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This therapy focuses on breaking down complicated tasks into smaller and more discrete instructional steps. ABA therapy has been utilized to improve behaviors such as waiting, making friends, following directions, asking for help, communicating needs and focusing on a specific task.

How long does ABA therapy take?

There is not a simple answer to this question. Research shows that participants who receive intensive ABA therapy for a period of one to three years show significant and long-lasting improvements across many different domains. Many focused ABA treatment programs include 10-25 hours of services. These services focus on a limited number of improvement targets.

Can ABA therapy be done at home?

These services can be offered in the home, at school, within the community or in clinic-based settings. Therapy provided from home, school and community settings has been found to be more efficient. This is because it allows for maladaptive behaviors to be addressed within the child’s natural environment.
