If you are the parent of a child with Autism, you know that finding the right ABA Clinic/Therapist is essential. While ABA Therapy is provided by a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) and/or a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), there are many things to consider when making this important decision, such as location, experience, and approach.
ABA Therapy uses behavioral techniques to identify and employ specific solutions. The use of ABA Therapy has a variety of applications. ABA Therapy is the approach that targets behavior patterns in particular ways, such as removing the plate from the dining room table or asking the parent to help them. In this way, ABA Therapists can target the environment’s response to an underlying behavior to achieve the desired outcomes.
Every child is different, and every therapy program varies. Still, in general, kids who participate in ABA Therapy see improvement in their behavior and abilities. For example, they learn how to take turns during an interaction, ask for what they want, and follow instructions like “Go brush your teeth”. Some therapists might recommend switching things up so that kids learn tasks in different contexts; others might stick with the same setting to provide consistency.
We look forward to hearing from you.
