While there are several types of autism therapies which seek to reduce symptoms that interfere with daily functioning and quality of life applied behavior analysis or ABA is considered the gold standard. The science and the therapeutic application of behavior analysis has been progressing for more than 60 years.
We now have an abundance of evidence demonstrating that ABA therapy is highly effective for teaching both simple and complex skills and for lessening the challenges associated with autism and other developmental disabilities. Those challenges include impairments in functional communication, social and play skills, academic skills, independent living skills and vocational skills.
Unfortunately, not all providers follow correct ABA procedures. The wrong application of the therapy can be detrimental to a child. It is important to choose a high-quality ABA provider. The child should be eager to attend their therapy sessions.
