What are the principles of ABA therapy?

A leading therapeutic intervention called applied behavior analysis (ABA) is commonly used to change or improve maladaptive behaviors in children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other extreme behavioral problem. ABA is supported by years of scientific research and is designed to promote positive behaviors, consequently reducing unwanted behaviors. ABA therapy can improve behaviors such as language and communication, focus, attention, and interpersonal relationships.

How long are ABA therapy sessions?

Therapists providing ABA therapy design programs to meet the specific needs of each child, which are based on age, diagnosis, and behaviors that need modifying. The longest lasting and most significant gains across multiple behaviors are achieved with intensive ABA services provided over a period of one to three years. Other more targeted programs focus on a few areas and provide about 10 to 25 hours.

Where can I receive ABA therapy?

Children with ASD can receive ABA services in their homes, at school, in a clinic-based setting or in the community. Researchers have discovered that ABA is more effective at improving maladaptive behaviors when delivered at school, within the community, or at home. Since most unwanted behaviors are occurring in the environments where the child spends the most time, teaching the skills of daily living in that real-world environment can result in more positive outcomes.
