Effective Treatment Strategies for Teaching Children with Autism
Children with autism lack the skills necessary to acquire and process basic information and, because of this, learn differently from their peers. Despite the disruption of typical learning processes, behavioral scientists have used the principles and procedures of learning theory to develop effective treatment strategies for teaching children with autism. This approach is known as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
How Is ABA Therapy Used?
ABA therapy is based on more than 50 years of scientific investigation with individuals affected by a wide range of behavioral and developmental disorders. Research has shown that behavioral interventions greatly reduce disruptive behaviors typically observed in individuals with Autism, such as self-injury, tantrums, non-compliance and self-stimulation. ABA is effective in teaching complex communication, social, play and self-help skills.
What Happens During ABA Therapy?
In all ABA programs, the intent is to increase skills in language, play and socialization while decreasing behaviors that interfere with learning. The results can be profound. Clients start to establish eye contact, learn to stay on task, and acquire the ability and the desire to learn and do well. Even if a child does not achieve a “best outcome” result of normal functioning levels in all areas, nearly all children with Autism benefit from intensive ABA programs.
How is ABA Therapy Progress Recorded?
Our therapists keep records on the initial evaluation, progress, and discharge of clients. This helps to pinpoint problems, track client progress, and justify the cost of treatment when applying for reimbursement.
