Autism & ABA
What is Autism & ABA?
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects a child’s social interactions, communication skills, and behavior. It is characterized by a range of challenges, including difficulties with social communication, repetitive behaviors, sensory sensitivities, and a preference for routine and predictability.
Autism therapy services in early intervention refer to a range of specialized interventions that help overcome the challenges of ASD. These services aim to promote your child’s development, enhance their communication and social skills, and support their overall well-being. The goal of autism therapy services in early intervention is to help your child reach their full potential, maximize their independence, and improve their quality of life.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a scientific problem-solving approach that aims to improve quality of life for individuals, families, and communities through using the science of behavior change. Today ABA is widely recognized as a safe and effective treatment for ASD. It has been endorsed by a number of state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Surgeon General and the New York State Department of Health.
