Therapists use Applied Behavior Analysis therapy or ABA to help children with autism or other developmental disorders. ABA is all about how a child’s behavior works in real situations.
ABA is a flexible treatment. It involves many techniques that increase helpful behaviors and decrease harmful behaviors. Positive reinforcement is one of its main techniques. Our therapists will recommend specific interventions in reducing problematic behaviors and improving communication and other skills.
More importantly, while the goals of ABA treatment largely depend on your child’s individual needs, ABA relies on parents to help reinforce desired behaviors outside of therapy too.
