The Importance of Early Intervention Using Autism ABA Therapy

We can start ABA therapy early in a child’s life for better outcomes, so we urge families to reach out as soon as their child has been diagnosed. Doing so allows our therapists to teach essential social and academic success skills as early as possible.

Does ABA Therapy Work?

Yes, this therapy is very effective. Our therapists use strategies to improve communication and social skills. These techniques help children interact with peers, form friendships, and handle social situations. They consider each child’s behavior to focus on their social and coping abilities.

What to Expect From an ABA Therapist

The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association endorse ABA therapy. This kind of therapy is unique because it’s customizable for each child. The therapist works with the child and their caregivers to set goals and create a plan that suits them.

Each therapist aims to help your child control their emotions and behavior. They teach techniques to handle emotions, cope with anxiety and frustration, and deal with challenging situations.

At Rising Above ABA, our board-certified behavior analysts and technicians have been trained to our high standards and provide excellent ABA therapy.
