FIT IN Child Development Centre
It has been proven that ABA Therapy is the most effective modern treatment in helping children with autism to reduce their symptoms so that they can lead a normal life. The risk of children reaching a mentally stagnated point and facing learning difficulties is high if treatment of autism is delayed. Another risk of delayed diagnosis/treatment is that ASD children may have cognitive or sensory issues and cannot fit into normal day-to-day environment. Usually, after two years of intensive ABA therapy treatment, the high functioning child would no longer be in the spectrum and will start his school life as a regular kid, going to mainstream school with same-age peers.
“If a child cannot learn in the way we teach… We must teach in a way that the child can learn.”
Children with autism typically lack the motivation to learn new tasks and take part in their social environment. Some traits you may observe when placed in social situations are temper tantrums, crying, non-compliance, inattention, fidgeting, staring, attempting to leave, or unwillingness. The use of ABA therapy can increase the motivational desire in children with autism, therefore, significantly enhancing the effectiveness of the teaching environment.
ABA Therapy Approaches
Video modelling: uses repeated presentations of target behaviours to improve various skills in individuals with autism, including conversational speech (i.e., verbal responding), vocabulary, emotional understanding, and daily living skills.
Self-management treatment: helps ASD children to increase independence without increased reliance on a teacher or parent. Self-management treatment typically involves self- evaluation of performance, self-monitoring, and self-delivery of reinforcement.
Pivotal response therapy (PRT): Development of skills is promoted by primarily two ‘pivotal’ behavioural skills: motivation and the ability to respond to multiple cues. Studies have shown that the development of these skills results in overall behavioural improvements in children with ASD.
Reinforcement: Reinforcement is any stimulus that will increase the likelihood of a target behaviour reappearing. The stronger the reinforcement, the faster the child will learn.
