Pediatric ABA Therapy

Children who demonstrate behavioral-related challenges may have an underlying condition like autism. These conditions can make it more difficult for a child to learn how to behave appropriately in different situations. At Communication Corner and More, we provide services to improve your child’s behavior and help them live happier and more independent lives.

How Does ABA Therapy Work?

Applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapy is an evidence-based approach to helping children reduce challenging behaviors and gain new skills. It can focus on several target areas, including:

  • Social and emotional communication skills
  • Academic skills
  • Behavioral skills
  • Self-care skills
  • Language skills

Our ABA therapists tailor a treatment plan to your child’s specific needs, no matter what those might be. We use a play-based model for ABA therapy, meaning we create interactions and problem-solving scenarios using methods that resemble playtime. This technique helps children open up, as they don’t feel like they are in a therapy setting.

How Do I Know if ABA Therapy Is Right for My Child?

Many children benefit from ABA therapy when they display symptoms like:

  • Inability or unwillingness to make eye contact.
  • Lack of a reaction to a parent’s voice or presence.
  • Distress over change that is disproportional to what would be expected.
  • Difficulty following instructions.
  • Repetition of what others say.
  • Trouble with making friends and sharing.
  • Issues with acquiring self-care and hygiene skills.

You may also want to look into ABA therapy if your child is diagnosed with or has symptoms of conditions such as:

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Oppositional defiant disorder (ODD)
  • Down syndrome
  • Developmental delays

Benefits of Professional Behavior Therapy for Children

ABA therapy is a highly beneficial service for many children who have challenging behaviors or issues grasping new skills. Some of the most common advantages include:

  • Teaching children to maximize their potential: Children can acquire new skills, helping boost their confidence and independence, improve relationships, and enhance their well-being.
  • Assisting children with new skill acquisition: Children can use the new skills to overcome obstacles, healthily regulate their emotions and foster relationships.
  • Improving the family life: ABA therapy has a family-centered approach to help you understand what your child will learn and how you can help them transfer skills.
