ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) is ready to assist your family to become more structured and less stressful. The science of ABA provides tools that will make your days a little bit easier. I have heard from many families (those with a child on the spectrum and those not) that ‘oh boy these summer days are quite long’. Here are my recommendations for success today and throughout the year.
2. Review the daily schedule in the morning: This means that you have to think through your day, but this
can also be done with your child present. A predictable day will lead to less questioning.
3. Lots of positive interactions: provide your child with hugs, high fives, ‘good job’, smiles, etc. along with
specific praise of what they are doing (then you are more likely to see these actions in the future! (It is called reinforcement)). Then when you have to redirect for poor behavioral choices, state with what you want to see (example: ‘Let’s walk’, not ‘Stop running’)
4. Lastly, have fun! Enjoy every day with your child!!! Go to fun places and make wonderful memories.

ABA can help you to establish some of these routines in your home, provide you with new suggestions, or provide more intensive therapy to your child with ASD to assist them in fully participating in the above-stated (or modified) plan, based on their need. ABA is an individualized therapy that can focus on behavior reduction, just as much as communication, leisure skills, daily living skills, play skills, etc. ABA’s services are boundless, and ready to offer you assistance.
