Autism & Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapy

Hello PBT Family, April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. This is an internationally recognized day every year to help encourage Member states of the United Nations to raise awareness about people with Autism disorder. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a common method to help provide services to people with autism. ABA Therapy is used to help autistic clients cope with harmful behaviors. This therapy begins by first identifying the behavior, and what triggers it, and then teaching a safe approach to controlling this behavior. Asking questions such as Who?, What?, Where?, When?, Why?, and How? Help give the therapist insight into what is causing the client to act this way and how to help them communicate what they need in a safer manner.
