From ASD to ABA, Learning a New Language
When you and your family are new to an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis, it can feel like there’s a whole new world and language to learn. Review the basics of ASD and learn more about applied behavior analysis (ABA) — the only intervention for autism with scientific support, leading to comprehensive, lasting improvements in the lives of individuals with autism.
What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that affects a person’s ability to communicate and engage in social interaction. People with autism also have restricted behavior that can interfere with learning. Characteristics of autism show up in a variety of ways, which means the approach to instruction for each learner with autism has to be individualized.

What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)?
ABA is a scientific approach to understanding how environmental events influence behavior and learning. A primary focus of ABA is the use of positive consequences to teach skills meaningful to the individual and their family (e.g., learning to communicate). Decades of research have shown that ABA treatment is safe and effective and has been recognized by the U.S. Surgeon General, The American Academy of Pediatrics, and the National Institutes of Mental Health.
