ABA Therapy: An intervention for Children with disabilities

The Applied Behavior Analysis or (ABA Therapy) has been widely endorsed by experts to deal with child Autism, Asperger, or those children who have learning disabilities or delays. It has been proven by the experts that the ABA helps the children with special needs to perform independently at home, and adapt a positive behavior. What does it do? The Autism ABA Therapy aims to understand the child’s actions and skills (behavior) and how the environment (including the people around) affects by it. Though behavioral analysis is primarily developed for children with Autism, it is effective to treat ADD in children and other developmental delays. Moreover, the autism therapy attempt to explain how the kids learn by utilizing strategies such as positive reinforcement depends on their response to a certain activity. On the other hand, autism help therapy is not a “one size fits it all” principle, rather it analyzes the child’s behavioral needs and the therapist come up into a plan of action that addresses the need of the child.

One of the challenges that we encounter is to involve the parents on the child’s therapy, so we have formulated a program especially for parents to be trained in dealing in home autism therapy. Experts suggests that early intervention is better and have an excellent results as far as the child’s learning potential is concerned. Furthermore, involvement of the parents and caregivers expedite the goal of the therapy and offer a satisfactory results. Below are the main target of aba therapy:

  • Social skills
  • Behavior
  • Communication skills

Most children with autism spectrum disorder are having hard time recognizing and possessing the typical reaction during a conversation or play time. For starters, children will be exposed to different settings (playground, school, parks etc.) for them to feel comfortable. For kids with maladaptive behaviors like self-injurious or to others, there are strategies to decrease or totally remove these behaviors. There are positive reinforcement to motivate the child to repeat favorable behavior and providing consequence for unfavorable responses. In communication skills, therapist and parents work hand in hand to motivate the child to talk, if not with the use of gestures or sign languages. There are activities as well that needs to be performed to stimulate the child to talk like massaging the face or brushing the tongue and the buccal mucosa.
