What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by varying degrees of difficulty in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and the presence of repetitive behavior and/or restricted interests. Due to the variability and symptom presentation, no two individuals with a ASD diagnosis are the same with respect to how the disorder manifests and its impact on families.
How does ABA benefit those with Autism?
ABA is widely recognized as a safe and effective treatment for autism. Over the last decade, the nation has seen a particularly dramatic increase in the use of ABA to help persons with autism live happy and productive lives. In particular, ABA principles and techniques can foster basic skills such as looking, listening and imitating, as well as complex skills such as reading, conversing and understanding another person's perspective.
