How is Applied Behavior Analysis Used?
ABA aims to improve social behaviors such as reading, social skills, verbal communication and activities of daily living (eating, brushing teeth, self-dressing and writing). ABA is often used to treat diagnosed conditions such as:
- Intellectual Disabilities
- Severe Developmental Disabilities
- Down Syndrome
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Pain associated with Sickle Cell Anemia
- Tourette Syndrome
How Long Does ABA Take?
The length of services is individualized to the client and the skills that need to be developed. The length of treatment depends on the rate of growth of each client.
Children who have moderate to severe autism may need to undergo treatment for longer than those with less complicated conditions. The length of treatment depends on the rate of improvement and that is different for every child.
What is the ABA Process?
After a consultation and series of diagnostic assessments, a comprehensive treatment plan will be designed based on the individual needs of your child; with the goal of improving their quality of life.
