A resource for parents and caregivers of children with autism
How does ABA therapy for children work?
“Ultimately, knowing what drives us puts us in the driver’s seat.” – Susan M. Schneider, psychobiologist and naturalist
ABA therapy works in a series of stages starting with a consultation and evaluation. You should search for “aba therapy near me” and find a local ABA therapist to work with. The initial assessment is a functional behavior assessment or FBA. Part of the assessment is digging into what the strengths and challenges are for the person being assessed.
The therapist will spend some time interacting with the person being assessed to make notes about their behavior, communication and skill set. Doing observations within the home and school setting could also be part of the assessment. The more an ABA therapist can see the person doing their typical daily activities the more accurate their findings will be.
