ABA therapy is a science dedicated to understanding and improving human behavior; it focuses on identifying specific behaviors that carry social significance and conducting interventions that aim to improve these behaviors.
ABA therapy is commonly used to improve the social skills, communication, and learning skills of children with autism or learning difficulties. Moreover, it is considered the best treatment for autism because it is an evidence-based approach that has been known for its effectiveness especially when it starts at early stages.
What are the goals of ABA therapy?
In general, ABA aim to improve the child’s response to social settings, increase focusing abilities and learning skills, and help them learn personal tasks, such as how to eat, bathe, or dress with less assistance or independently.
ABA therapy can provide other benefits that include the following:
- Increase the child’s interest in people and their surroundings
- Increase the child’s communication with others
- Improve focus and learning abilities in school
- Reduce or stop self-harm and tantrums
We believe that every child can learn to improve their skills by developing personalized plans and teaching methods suitable for their needs.
Typically, our programs consist of language and communication exercises, functional skills, physical activities and sessions to help reduced unwanted behaviors. If your child is struggling with specific skills, we can provide tailored programs that address these skills and work on improving them.
As mentioned above, ABA is a scientific approach that aims to change and improve behavior. In our treatment programs, we collect data on your child’s behavior before, during and after every session to ensure that our approach is effective and make the necessary changes accordingly.
During clinic meetings, our specialists will provide training for parents, review the progress of their child and make changes to the treatment approach depending on the child’s improvement.
Keep in mind that ABA is a long-term therapy that involves many different techniques; it is a flexible and progressive treatment that depends on the needs of the child.
