Applied behavior analysis, or ABA therapy, has helped millions of children who have developmental or behavioral disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders (ASD) achieve a better life and lifestyle. It teaches them by reducing complicated tasks to small, simple steps that are easily accomplished and it focuses on specific areas. ABA therapy improves behaviors in areas such as communication, asking for help, social interactions, following directions, making friends, and patience.Learn more
Each ABA therapy regimen is specially tailored to the child's needs, so each will have a unique time frame. However, experience and research indicate that broad-spectrum ABA therapy that lasts between one to three years achieves the most satisfactory results over time. Focused treatments require between 10 and 25 hours and can provide improvement in selected, targeted areas for inappropriate behaviors.Learn more
ABA therapy is frequently performed in the natural environment of the home, school or community, although it can be done in a clinical setting. Natural environments often provide the best setting because this is where the majority of maladaptive or inappropriate behaviors occur. This also helps the child to develop skills that are specific to their life and lifestyle.Learn more
Many children with ASD have been able to significantly improve their independent interaction skills with the help of ABA therapy. The goal of the program is to improve social skills and communication skills while reducing the incidence of maladaptive behaviors.Learn more
