Don’t wait. Talk to your doctor or contact your county’s Early Intervention Services department about getting your child screened for autism.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a scientific based learning program, which teaches a learner to learn through repetition and reward. ABA focuses on the relationship between behavior and the environment then functionally assesses that relationship to ensure interventions will result in behavior change. Expected outcomes when using an ABA approach are to increase or decrease the target responses and behaviors. Outcomes and treatment goals rely on direct and indirect observations and data collection by those working with the child.
