What type of treatment is ABA therapy?

Applied behavior analysis, or ABA therapy, is a scientifically proven method for changing or improving maladaptive behaviors in children with developmental and behavioral disorders, like autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It teaches children by reducing complicated tasks into easy-to-follow steps that the child can complete, and it's been effective in the areas of asking for help, increasing attention spans, making friends, waiting, and following directions, among other social and emotional skills.

How long do the ABA therapy treatments take?

Each child seeking ABA therapy is individually evaluated and an ABA therapy program is tailored to their needs and skill level, so the time needed for their treatment will be specific to them. However, the most effective treatments last from one to three years and include multiple domains of work. Focused treatments can encompass between 10 and 25 hours and include a smaller number of targeted areas.

Are at-home sessions available for ABA therapy?

Natural environments are often the most successful venues for ABA therapy, and they include the home as well as the school and the community, although clinical settings can be used. Since inappropriate behaviors are most often exhibited in familiar environments, these settings enable a more focused treatment regimen and increase the opportunity to teach appropriate living skills where they will be used.

Is ABA therapy successful?

ABA therapy has successfully helped many children with developmental disorders such as ASD. The goal of ABA therapy is to increase your child's independent interaction with their environment and to increase the social skills that are appropriate to their lifestyle and environment. The typical areas that are targeted for improvement include adaptive living, communication, and social interactions.
