Aba Therapy


ABA therapy is a type of behavioral intervention that uses systematic and systematic approach to help children with autism learn and improve their behavior. The goal of ABA therapy is to help children develop social skills, adaptive behaviors and communication abilities through training in everyday life situations such as prompting or prompting reinforcement from parents.

Discrete Trial Training

Discrete trial training is a type of ABA therapy that focuses on teaching students to perform specific tasks. The method is particularly useful for teaching children with autism or other developmental disabilities, who often have difficulty learning how to interact with others and respond appropriately in social situations.

Discrete Trial Training (DTT) is a structured teaching method that uses discrete trials—small steps toward mastering new skills—to help students develop their abilities at an accelerated pace. For example, if you want your child to learn how to play piano well enough so he can play along with you at home, then you might use DTT by asking him questions about what he already knows about music (e.g., "What do you know about playing the piano?"), then giving him small cues or prompts ("Can I ask you some questions?") while observing whether he makes progress toward mastering each skill set step by step until finally reaching success!

Verbal Behavior Training

Verbal behavior is a type of therapy that uses words to help children learn new behaviors. It can be used to teach children how to control their emotions, problem solve and communicate with others.

Verbal behavior training involves teaching your child what you want him or her to do (for example, sit in a chair) using positive reinforcement strategies such as praise or toys if the desired behavior occurs. The goal is for your child learn how best practices for everyday activities such as eating meals, going potty and playing with friends so that these skills become second nature over time.

Focused Behavior Intervention

Focused behavior intervention (FBA) is a type of ABA therapy that focuses on one specific behavior and uses it to teach the person with autism how to control their own behaviors. The goal is not to change the overall level of anxiety or impulsiveness in someone with autism, but instead, to target specific behaviors as they arise.

FBA can be used with children or adults who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It's an effective way for parents who are frustrated by their child's constantly changing routines or wandering away from them at home alone during the day because they're bored. The focus here becomes teaching children how they can manage their own impulses so as not only not get into trouble again but also feel less stressed about having different needs than others do when interacting socially

Natural Environment Training

Natural environment training is a type of ABA therapy that focuses on teaching a child how to behave in real-world situations. It's used for children with autism or other developmental disabilities, and it uses their home and community as the training environment.

In natural environment training, you'll see your child interacting with people who aren't trained professionals—like family members or friends—in various settings like grocery stores or school hallways. The goal is for your child's caregivers (usually other adults) to teach them appropriate social interactions through these interactions with familiar people in familiar environments

Behavior Reduction Intervention

Behavior reduction intervention is a type of ABA therapy that helps to reduce the frequency and severity of problem behaviors. It's a short-term intervention, and it targets antecedents (the causes) and consequences (the effects) of problem behaviors.

It can be used to help children who have difficulty with self-regulation or impulsivity.

Organizational Skills Training

Organizational skills training is a type of ABA therapy that focuses on teaching people how to be more organized and productive. This can help with the following tasks:

  • Organizing your schedule

  • Managing time effectively

  • Planning ahead, setting goals and achieving them by creating lists, planning events or projects you want to do.

Parent Training

Parent Training is a form of behavior modification that helps parents to better understand and manage the behaviors of their child. It is often used with children who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), other developmental disabilities, or mental health issues.

The goal of Parent Training is to help parents learn how to help their child succeed in school by teaching them how they can best support their child's learning needs.

Social Skills Training

Social skills training is a form of behavioral therapy that helps children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) learn to interact with others. It usually involves a group setting and can be done in pairs or groups, depending on your child's needs.

Social skills trainers are typically therapists who have been trained to help individuals with ASD improve their social interactions by teaching them how to respond appropriately when they're around others. They may also teach you how best to respond as well!

There are several types of ABA Therapy.

There are several types of ABA Therapy.

  • Discrete Trial Training: This type of ABA therapy involves training children in two or more tasks at a time, then evaluating them on their performance and rewarding them when they perform well. The goal is to increase the number of correct responses to items over time so that the child will generalize this skill to other situations where it’s needed (e.g., grocery shopping).

  • Verbal Behavior Training: This type of ABA therapy helps children learn how to use language skills such as labels for objects, random access memory words (e.g., “goes”), and vocabulary development by using prompts from parent-child interaction sessions with lots of repetition until the child gets used to using those words consistently in everyday life situations without prompting from adults around him/her
