For a parent with a child diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, it is a difficult journey.

The cognitive and behavioral difficulties present barriers that impact the child’s education and quality of life. Abrazos is here to help!

Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy, also known as ABA Therapy, has come to the forefront of being the most effective treatment therapy for children diagnosed with autism.

Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Psychological Association recommend and endorse ABA Therapy as the leading, research-based methodology proven to bring about positive, meaningful change in behavior and learning in individuals diagnosed with autism.

ABA Therapy utilizes intensive (20-40 hours per week), long-term (1-3 years) reinforcement and environmental adjustments to improve or change specific learning and behaviors.

It is proven to achieve major improvements in cognitive, socialization, motor, and executive function, and mastered improvements in academics and language. Combined, these significant improvements maximize the potential for a better education and a better life for children diagnosed with autism.
