What Is ABA?The Autism Site
Your child has just been diagnosed with autism and you’ve been directed to treat them by using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). But you can’t help but question what is this treatment and is it really affective?
ABA has been around since the 1960s. Through decades of research, the field of behavior analysis has developed many techniques for increasing useful behaviors. Applied behavior analysis is the use of these techniques and principles to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior. With such a wide spectrum, the use of multiple techniques seems to be the most effective method of treatment and intervention.
Watch as Autism Live gives us a heads up about what ABA is all about and how it has been scientifically proven to be affective to treat all kids on the spectrum. Early intervention is key to your child’s development and it starts with therapy!
