What is ABA therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy teaches children affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other developmental disorders how to break complicated tasks down into simplified steps. This evidence-based method of treatment has been successfully utilized in improving or changing behaviors such as communicating needs, making friends, waiting, following instructions, attending to tasks and asking for help.

How long is ABA therapy expected to take?

Establishing an exact timeframe for ABA therapy services is difficult. This is due to the fact that each child receives a customized treatment plan. We do know that current studies have shown that children who receive intensive ABA services for one to three years show the most improvements in multiple skill areas. Focused ABA treatment services tend to include programs of around 10-25 hours that focus on a few specific skill areas.

Is ABA therapy traditionally done at home?

This type of therapy is most effective and efficient when it is delivered at home, school or within the community. Providing ABA therapy in these settings allows the therapist to teach the child the skills he or she needs while in the environments where those skills will be most needed.

If your child has significant deficits in social, communication, adaptive living and behavioral skills, he or she will benefit from ABA treatment. The goal of the therapy is to work with your child in developing skills that assist in daily functioning, as well as helping a child learn how to interact independently with the world.
