How Can ABA Therapy Help Children?
At Mission Autism Clinics, we create individualized treatment plans for children, so what exactly goes into their treatment may vary. Children in our programs can receive one on one therapy and group sessions with their peers. Our ABA therapy program helps get the whole family involved in your child’s treatment so that you understand the care they’re receiving and are well-equipped to support them at home.
Here are some of the top ways that ABA therapy can benefit children and teens with autism.
They Can Learn Life Skills
In ABA therapy, your child will learn important life skills to help them live more independently and care for themselves. This includes learning self-care and hygiene skills, such as getting dressed and brushing their teeth. Children also learn life skills like focusing on their school work and some pre-vocational skills.
ABA Therapy Improves Communication
Communication is an area where many children with autism experience challenges. This can make it difficult to discuss their needs and impacts their ability to maintain relationships with others. We help children improve their language and conversational skills and make friends.
It Helps Reduce Problem Behaviors
ABA therapy doesn’t only help children develop new skills that can be difficult for those with autism. In ABA therapy, children are rewarded for their positive behaviors. However, this doesn’t mean they’re punished for negative behaviors. In fact, problem behaviors, such as outbursts and aggression, often don’t receive any attention.
Children Grow at Their Own Pace
Your child’s treatment is meant for them, not anyone else. We look at your child’s unique needs to determine the areas we need to focus on and find the best way to help them grow. At Mission Autism Clinics, we know that every child is different and learns new skills at their own pace. We break things down into small tasks to make it easier for children and reassess their needs as they grow and develop in the program at their own pace.
