Is Autism Therapy Using ABA Right for Your Child?
MEET YOUR ABA TEAM
As with many approaches to autism, ABA is certainly worth a trial. Before getting started, however, be sure your child’s therapist is trained, know how and where she will be working with your child, and work with your therapist to set up measurable goals. Keep a close eye on the process and outcomes.
Most importantly, be aware of your child’s responses to the therapist and the therapy. Is she excited when she “gets to” work with her therapist? Is she responding to the therapist with smiles and engagement? Is she learning skills that are helping her in her daily life? If the answers are “yes,” you’re moving in the right direction.
