ABA therapy in children with autism spectrum disorder: Case report

Session

Psychology

Description

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or autism is a developmental disability that affects the way people communicate, behave or interact with others. New approaches to behavior modification, such as applied behavior analysis (ABA), are becoming increasingly relevant and applicable to behavior modification and regulation in many disorders, particularly in children with autism. Applied behavior analysis, also called behavioral engineering, is an evidence-based approach that involves the application of empirical approaches based upon the principles of operant conditioning to change behavior. These defining characteristics state that applied behavior analysis should be applied, behavioral, analytic, technological, conceptual, effective, and capable of generalized outcomes in modeling and transforming objectives. This paper presents the importance of approaching the treatment of children with autism spectrum disorder based on different methods and tools based on best practices and a case presentation of successful implementation of techniques. This approach works best when individuals with ASD are accompanied by empathetic, dedicated, appropriate, patient and above all professional therapists.
