Frequently Asked Questions


Autism Spectrum disorder is a developmental disorder that affects an individual’s behaviours, ability to communicate and social aspects of life. Autism arises in all ethnic, racial and socio-economic groups. Autism is commonly detected and diagnosed at a young age. However, it can at times not be detected until adulthood. Autism is considered a spectrum disorder as there are vast variations in the effects on different individuals. Autism affects all individuals differently which is why implementing personalized treatment plans is of great importance. As those with ASD reach different stages of life, their experiences on the spectrum change. 

Applied behaviour analysis is a scientific evidence-based behaviour therapy method that has been used since the 1960s to help individuals with autism and related developmental disorders. ABA therapy can be adapted to meet the needs of each unique individual. It can be implemented on a one-on-one basis or through group instruction. ABA can be applied across many settings and teaches skills that are useful in everyday life.

Individuals affected by autism often struggle with social and interpersonal relationships, communication, sensory development and functional life skills. ABA therapy aims to increase language and communication skills. It is used to improve attention and memory, encourage social skills, assist in academic learning and decrease problem behaviours.
