Resources for Parents on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and Autism

Applied behavior analysis can be a confusing field to fully comprehend especially if you have not heard of this practice before. When your child has autism, he or she may receive ABA. Applied behavior analysis is becoming much more highly recommended as the treatment of choice as it is an evidence-based practice for children with autism spectrum disorder. This means that scientific literature has repeatedly shown that ABA has been an effective treatment for helping children with autism make progress and learn new skills.

I will list some resources for you (parents) to help you better understand the treatment (ABA) that your child may receive. I hope you find these resources useful.
