ABA Therapy Dubai – A Path-Breaking Approach to Behavior Modification and Skills Development
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a common developmental disorder found in children of all ages. This is a disorder that impairs the child’s ability to communicate and interact and it can get diagnosed at any age. Usually, the symptoms start appearing in the very early years of childhood and the condition may gradually become worse if treatment is not started on time.
Applied Behavior Analysis Dubai – The Most Effective Therapy for Autism
One of the most widely accepted therapies to treat children with ASD is the Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy (ABA).This therapy is mainly based on the scientific study, which is known as Behavior Analysis and can be applied to children from 2 years of age up to any age group. A child’s behavior becomes greatly influenced by his/her surrounding environment. This therapy uses different effective approaches to encourage and improve socially significant positive behaviors in children on the autism spectrum. From Applied Behavior Therapy at Hope AMC, children can acquire language and communication ability, reasoning skills, motor skills, social skills, learning and academic skills, verbal behaviors, self-care ability, play skills, etc.
How does this therapy work?
ABA Applied Behavior Analysis incorporates different treatment and approaches to teach children how to overcome challenging behaviors.
- One of the approaches is the Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA). It is an integral part of this therapy and is conducted when a child gets involved in challenging behavior. At Hope AMC, with the help of this approach, the therapists try to figure out the reason behind the occurrence of the problem behavior and accordingly, offer the necessary intervention. Constant monitoring of the child’s behavior, collection of observational data, thorough assessment, and functional analysis are the steps involved in FBA.
- Continuous monitoring and evaluation are a part of the ABA Therapy. After a deep analysis and assessment of the challenging behavior, customized goals are set depending on the specific conditions of the children and accordingly, therapeutic methods are implemented successfully.
- Judging the antecedents and the consequences of the behavior is crucial in ABA Therapy.
- Positive Reinforcement Approach strategy, an important wing of this therapy, incorporates the psychological propensity that when a behavior is rewarded with something the child values, then he/she is more likely to repeat that behavior in future and this will gradually result in a positive behavioral change.
At Hope AMC, extensive one-on-one sessions of ABA Therapy Dubai are provided to the children and their individual needs and issues are targeted so that they can overcome their challenges. Parents and guardians should also become an integral part of this therapy so that they can encourage and help their children to practice the skills at home and reinforce positive behavior constantly. Children will learn to develop socially significant skills, communication skills, and ability to interact socially.
