Applied behavior analysis therapy, or ABA therapy, is an evidence-based method that focuses on improving maladaptive behaviors in children who have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. Children are taught how to complete complex tasks by reducing them into small steps that are easily completed. This builds the child's self-confidence and self-esteem and helps to reduce or eliminate maladaptive behaviors.Learn more
The length of time needed for ABA therapy will depend on the child's level of development and the degree of their maladaptive behaviors. Usually, a program of between one and three years will yield the best results. Focused treatments that deliver between 10 and 25 hours of ABA therapy are used to target specific areas that need the most improvement.Learn more
ABA therapy is often conducted at home, at school, or in the community environment. It can also be conducted in the clinical setting. However, when conducted in the familiar environments of the home, school, or within the community, maladaptive behaviors are most successfully addressed. This also enables the child to learn adaptive behaviors that are specific to their lifestyle.Learn more
ABA therapy can help ASD children who are lacking specific adaptive living, communication, and social skills, among other things. With ABA therapy, maladaptive behaviors that impede their daily function and independent interaction with their environment can be reshaped so that the child functions acceptably within their social and family environments.Learn more
