Aba Therapy

Aba Therapy

I have my son in speech and occupational therapy. How does Aba therapy help a child with autism oppose to the current therapy I have him in?

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

ABA is one on one daily life skills and acedemic skill training to reroute common behaviors that influence these skills. It helps parents and children learn to navigate autism together and they become less like an aide on your home and more like a for ever person who changes your child's life and yours. It gives you and your child a better relationship also because you learn to understand the why's for their behaviors.

ABA therapy can be used to teach new skills. Parents and caregivers can also learn to implement some of the techniques at home. This link has more info: https://www.autismspeaks.org/what-autism/treatm...
