ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis)
What is ABA Therapy?
ABA is an evidence-based treatment for children who have received a diagnosis of Autism that focuses on modifying environmental conditions to increase socially acceptable behaviors, such as communication, play, and social skills. Studies have shown early intervention is highly effective in improving IQ, language ability and social interaction. Paramount Rehabilitation Services Pediatric & Autism Center serves children ages 18 months to 21 years.
How Can ABA Help Your Child?
ABA therapy uses principles of behavior and teaches new skills through discrete trial training, natural environmental training, and derived relational responding. ABA focuses on increasing socially acceptable behaviors such as communication, social skills, and school readiness skills.
ABA can help increase:
- Communicating needs and wants
- Waiting, sharing, and turn taking with peers
- Conversational skills
- Eating a varied diet
- Toilet use and toilet training
- Playing with toys
- Pretend and imaginative play
- Participating in group activities with peers
