What type of treatment is ABA therapy?

Applied behavioral analysis, or ABA therapy, is an empirical behavioral program that changes or improves maladaptive behavioral issues in children or those with other types of developmental disorders. It has been effective in areas such as making friends, asking for help, attention span, communication, waiting, and following directions.

What's the average duration of an ABA therapy program?

Each child is evaluated and their ABA therapy is based on their current skill level and their needs, so there's no preset time that's allotted for their program. Usually, a broad-spectrum ABA therapy program of between one to three years is the most effective, and focused programs of between 10 and 25 hours are available for improvement in a few targeted areas.

Can ABA therapy sessions be done at home?

ABA therapy sessions are often the most successful when conducted in the familiar settings of the child’s community, home or school since these locations are often the site of most inappropriate behaviors or outbursts. Therapy conducted in familiar settings also provides additional opportunities for the child to learn independent interaction in situations that may be unique to them.
