What should I know about ABA therapy?

Applied behavior analysis, abbreviated as ABA, is a therapeutic intervention designed to reduce maladaptive behaviors and increase desirable behaviors in children who have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ABA therapy is backed by research studies and can help improve a variety of skills, including classroom learning, communication and social skills. This behavioral therapy teaches children by breaking down large tasks into smaller steps that are easier to manage.

How long will my child need ABA therapy?

Factors such as the behaviors needing modification and the age of the child strongly influence the length of an ABA treatment program. Researchers have found that receiving intensive ABA therapy for a period of one to three years is the most effective for children with ASD. There are also high-intensity, extensive programs which typically provide 10-25 hours of ABA therapy each week.

Can my child receive ABA therapy at home?

ABA is a flexible program that can be provided in a variety of settings, including home, community, school and clinical settings. Teaching children appropriate skills of daily living in the real world, such as at home, school or within the community, is typically more effective since there are more opportunities to improve skills that are useful in everyday life.
