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.Learn more
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.Learn more
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.Learn more
ABA therapy has been repeatedly proven valuable to children with ASD and other developmental disorders. By improving their ability to independently interact within their natural environment, adaptive living skills increase, maladaptive behaviors are greatly reduced, and the quality of life is greatly enhanced for both the child and their family members.Learn more
