Who ABA Therapy Helps

Supported by more than 50 years of research in the field, ABA therapy has been proven effective in improving socially significant behaviors such as communication, social skills, academics, reading, attending, compliance, following routines, transitions, waiting, accepting “no,” tolerating delayed access to reinforcement and life skills such as gross and fine motor skills, toileting, dressing, eating, personal self-care, domestic skills and work skills. In addition, these principles help to decrease maladaptive behaviors such as aggression, self-stimulatory behaviors, and self-injury.

How it Helps

Using principles of ABA therapy, therapists will identify behaviors in need of change then implement techniques that will increase or decrease targeted behaviors over time. Changes will then be monitored with systematic data collection to ensure that behaviors are changing in the appropriate direction. Because ABA therapy addresses the behavior as well as the environment, these changes can occur in the home, school and/or community.
