Frequently Asked Questions
ABA is an acronym for Applied Behavior Analysis. It is a science data-based therapy that involves a step by step application: assessment, evaluation, and implementation of a personalized plan that builds on strengths and addresses weaknesses to refine behavior and forward achievement in life.
Autism has no cure, hence therapy cannot treat it. However, it can address the symptoms of autism, by working with children on the spectrum to change behavior for the better.
ABA therapy relies on prompting and reinforcement to build a child’s social strengths and mitigate his or her maladaptive behaviors. At the same time, the process incorporates progress-monitoring and plan-restructuring if necessary to add techniques that will further advance individual goals.
