ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) is an evidence-based practice that forms the way that we think about the world around us. According to autismspeaks.org, “ABA therapy applies our understanding of how behavior works to real situations. The goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning.”

How Can ABA Therapy Help?

Research shows that intensive ABA therapy is the most successful approach in early intervention for children with autism. Per Autism Speaks, over 20 studies show robust gains in intellect, self help skills and social skills in children with autism that received 25-40 hours of ABA therapy per week over the course of 1-3 years.
