If your child is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), you may be unsure how you can help your child overcome their behavioral issues. The good news is that though autism has no cure, ABA Therapy can make a positive and significant difference.

What Is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy is used by trained therapists and teachers to aid children on the autism spectrum or those who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The autism therapy focuses on the cause-and-effect relationship between events, something which these children often struggle with.

It is based on the simple fact that all behavior is the result of personal history, which is basically a series of causal incidents. The therapy seeks to understand each child as an individual who can be motivated to adopt good behavior with positive reinforcement.

This autism therapy works because it is designed around each child’s specific needs that vary from one child to another. It focuses on building skills as well as eliminating negative behaviors that can otherwise stunt their progress.

With early intervention, children with autism can live, play, grow, and communicate just like other children who don’t have the condition. Additionally, older children can take longer to change established patterns, but they can still benefit from the therapy in the long term.

Why Choose ATG for your Child

The Autism Therapy Group offers supportive and customized treatments and therapies for children with autism, irrespective of where they fall in the spectrum. This includes in-home ABA therapy sessions that reduce costs, save time, and ensure that the child remains comfortable for the best results.

That’s because the home provides a non-threatening environment for such special children, and thus makes them more receptive to treatment and therapies. It also allows the therapist to implement interventions in the setting where certain behaviors can manifest. This makes in-home sessions more effective than simulated ones that can aggravate an already sensitive child.

Besides your home, we also take the treatment to other environments that the child is either familiar with or needs to get used to. This includes places of worship, restaurants, sports fields, swimming pools, the park, and other environments that they should experience. Our aim is to teach each child skills and behaviors that can be applied in the real world rather than ones they turn to in their minds.

Sanctioned by the Affordable Healthcare Act because of the measurable results it offers, ABA therapy can acclimatize your child with experiences that can make them independent and feel safe at the same time.
