Treatment and hope for Autism
ABA is short for Applied Behavioral Analysis, and it is often described as the “gold standard” for autism treatment, but it is not limited to helping only people with autism. ABA uses the principles of science to elicit behavior change that is negatively impacting a person’s life. ABA is for anyone who wants to change their behavior.
ABA therapy will address the developmental deficiencies identified during an initial assessment of your child’s functioning across dozens of areas. With children on the autism spectrum, this often includes areas of verbal communication, like the ability to converse with parents and peers, request items, and communicate emotions and needs. Nonverbal communication, like making gestures and understanding social cues, can also be developed.
Other important target areas of ABA include social skills, play skills, self-care skills (brushing teeth, washing hands, etc.), and day-to-day living skills (getting dressed, table manners, etc.).
