ABA is scientifically-proven to enable positive outcomes of increased desired behaviors. A variety of techniques are used to replace certain behaviors with positive ones. More information is here.

Warning signs include delayed development, lack of social skills and communication issues. If you suspect your child may have autism, speak with a qualified professional to seek diagnosis.

Children should be screened regularly for developmental delays by qualified practitioners. ASD has been diagnosed as young as 18 months, but screening should be conducted even prior to that by your healthcare professional. ASD is most commonly diagnosed between 24 months and six years of age.

A qualified practitioner normally conducts the diagnosis and if diagnosed may provide a written order for ABA therapy. Qualified practitioners can include Child Psychologists, Child Pediatricians, and Child Neurologists.
