Applied Behavioural Analysis Therapy is a type of behavioural therapy used to support children on the spectrum who faces challenges in life. These difficulties may include things like emotional disorders, learning disabilities and anxiety. ABA Horizons utilises a wide range of evidence-based interventions to create an individualised programme for your child’s needs that targets specific areas of their development such as play skills or communication based on research into what will be most beneficial.
We break down the process into small teachable tasks so that your child will learn new ways to adapt to life’s challenges and feel more confident over time. If you are considering starting ABA, the following information may help you decide if ABA Horizons is right for you.
