Focused ABA Treatment
In-home & Clinic-based
Children often benefit from focused ABA treatment. While a comprehensive ABA treatment plan may be long-term, focused ABA intervention might take place over a more brief period. It also differs from comprehensive ABA treatment in that this approach has more specific targets and often requires fewer hours of services.
Focused ABA intervention helps children learn replacement behaviors and may include adapting the environment to reduce the likelihood of any challenging behaviors. During focused ABA, the parents and professionals will avoid reinforcing challenging behaviors to encourage the new, positive behavior.
Children with autism can see significant gains with focused ABA treatment, but children with other concerns may also benefit from this type of intervention. For example, children who struggle with anxiety disorders may make significant progress with focused ABA intervention.
