Children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder often need direct instruction and guidance to thrive in everyday life activities. Over the past fifty years, researchers have determined several therapeutic methods to assist children who have autism with communication, adaptive skills, and social skills.

Today, many researchers recognize applied behavior therapy (ABA) as an effective, evidence-based autism therapy for children. This therapy includes many different techniques to help children improve life skills, follow directions, and reduce maladaptive behaviors.

If you are considering this effective therapy technique, determining the right treatment center for your child in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex or throughout North Texas can be daunting. Thankfully, our Autism Response Team (ART) has provided high-quality ABA services to children in Frisco, TX, for many years.

Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy

Applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy uses learning and behavior to shape a child’s development. This treatment can help children with autism improve numerous skills, such as:

  • Communication
  • Attention
  • Memory
  • Social skills
  • Focus
  • Academics

ABA therapy can also help decrease problem behaviors that many children with autism exhibit, such as aggression and self-injury. Our Autism Response Team members, who are Board-certified Behavior Analysts, use ABA therapy techniques to shape our clients’ behavior. Positive reinforcement, or rewarding healthy behavior, is one of the main strategies within this discipline.

Additionally, Behavior Analysts also utilize the Antecedent, Behavior, Consequence method to understand why a child’s behavior occurs and teach them consequences for their actions. Our Behavior Analysts also incorporate other therapies, such as play therapy or feeding therapy, into their overarching behavioral treatments.

At ART, our Behavior Analysts provide ABA treatment in both clinical and community-based environments. We can work with your child in our clinic or come to your house, your workplace, your child’s classroom, or any other environments in which your child functions best to provide our interventions.

Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy

With our Autism Response Team, our ABA treatments always begin with a complete assessment of each client. Understanding your child’s baseline behavioral successes and challenges can allow us to shape our treatment to provide the optimal benefits for their specific situation.

Our Behavior Analysts use various assessment tools and resources to evaluate each child depending on their age, goals, and concerns. A few evaluation resources we use regularly include:

  • Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills – Revised
  • Verbal Behavior –Milestones Assessment and Placement Program
  • Essential For Living
  • Assessment of Functional Living Skills

Additionally, parents play a significant role in contributing to accurate assessments of their children during the evaluation process.

After reviewing these assessments, our technicians can create a detailed medical diagnosis and develop individualized treatment plans that include evidence-based behavioral interventions. At ART, our initial assessments act as roadmaps that we can use to keep families in the loop about their children’s treatment plans and that shape our ABA therapy toward specialized goals.

Infant Development Programs

Research has shown that providing early intervention for children with autism is an effective way to minimize maladaptive behaviors and promote healthy functioning. Starting interventions early on, when many behaviors are not yet noticeably atypical, can help close the gap between a child with autism and one without any impairments, creating a more successful childhood.

At ART, we offer ABA infant development programs to help shape healthy behaviors as early as possible. Our comprehensive programs include interventions from speech, occupational, and physical therapists, giving your child the greatest chance of success as they grow into middle childhood.

When you work with our Frisco, TX, team, our Behavior Analysts will create a specialized treatment plan that targets your infant’s specific behavioral needs. They will also work with your entire family to generate a collaborative approach to behavioral change. Would you like to learn more about our Behavior Analysts? Read our About Us page to understand more about our qualifications to work with your child.

Parent Education Groups

At ART, we believe that the best interventions for children on the autism spectrum include participation and education from the parents. If you have a child with autism spectrum disorder, you can benefit from our 16-hour parent education groups.

Our parent education groups act as a prerequisite to our child therapy sessions. These groups can provide you with the resources you need to make ABA therapy the most effective for your child, shaping your ability to support your child through their growth.

When you attend a parent education group, you will learn more about:

· How autism can impact childhood development

· What an ABA program includes

· The principles of reinforcement and punishment

You will also have the opportunity to connect with other parents and families in our Frisco community who are walking the same path as you and your family.
