What does ABA teach?

ABA therapy programs are comprehensive and cover a variety of areas the child needs to be successful. These areas include: language skills, behavioral skills, cognitive skills, social skills, self-help/daily living skills, motor skills, and play/leisure skills. The overall goal is to teach your child to learn how to learn!

What does the research on ABA say?

Over the last 40 years, a large number of peer-reviewed studies have been conducted evaluating the effects of using various ABA techniques in a “comprehensive, individualized, intensive early intervention program for children with autism.” These studies have shown extremely positive results. “Comprehensive” refers to the fact that the intervention addresses all types of skills. “Early” means that the intervention began before the age of 4 for most children in many of the studies, and “intensive” referred to the number of hours of therapy the children received per week.

How many hours of ABA Therapy is needed?

The amount of ABA therapy needed will depend on a variety of factors. After an initial assessment is completed, the Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will assess your child's strengths and weaknesses. After completing the assessment, the Board-Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) will develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your child's needs. The BCBA will be able to tell you how many hours per week will be necessary to ensure that your child benefits from the services provided through New Direction ABA.
