Sign Language for ABA Therapy

Basic sign language and certain signs have been very helpful for ABA students to communicate. Many of these signs are simple and can be picked up easily by working with an ABA therapist or speech therapist.  By incorporating these signs into life at home, during therapy, and all other environments, a student can gain more independence and communicate needs more effectively.

Below are just a few of the most popular signs used throughout a child’s day for basic needs. However, there are many other signs that can be incorporated into a child’s routine. To learn other signs or about ASL, visit to learn more signs and watch videos of sign formation.

"Chicago ABA Therapy is a boon for special needs kids and parents. They take a play-based, personalized approach and meet the kids where they are. They also go above and beyond - our ABA therapist took time to make sure we as parents understood every aspect of our child's experience, understood how to read his progress reports and generally made us feel a part of his therapy. My child loved all his therapists. Highly recommend the team!"

"We were so happy with our experience with Chicago ABA. We began working with them when our son was almost 4, a few months after his autism diagnosis. It was such an amazing team to work with - everyone was professional, responsive, flexible, and worked so hard for our son to meet his goals, which he did beautifully. We worked together for almost 2 years before he left for kindergarten, and in that time period he met almost all of his goals. We went through several bumps in the road with behavioral difficulties, and the Chicago ABA team did an amazing job helping us problem solve, try new strategies and think of ways to translate those strategies at home. We couldn't recommend them more highly - anyone who works with Chicago ABA will be lucky to have the experience!"
