FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ABA therapy?

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a systemic approach to learning what motivates a child and then using that information to help create better learning and developmental opportunities that produce a more independent and happy life.

It is a form of treatment but also a way of understanding behavior. ABA looks at the context within which behavior occurs, then uses this information to help identify appropriate actions to achieve desired outcomes.

ABA involves modifying learning environments to help eliminate barriers to learning, better support the learner in building new skills, and help the learner apply those skills to new situations.

How does ABA therapy work?

ABA is an individualized/personalized treatment to each individual:

  • It is adapted to meet the needs of each unique person.
  • It is provided in many different locations – at home, in a clinic setting, at school, and in the community.
  • It provides the teaching of skills that are useful in everyday life.
  • Positive reinforcement is one of the main principles used in ABA.
  • When a behavior is followed by something valued (a reward), a person is more likely to repeat that behavior. Over time, this encourages positive behavior change.
  • During assessment and treatment, a BCBA identifies a goal for behavior to increase. Each time the person uses the action or skill successfully, they get reinforcement (a reward).
  • The reinforcement (reward) is meaningful to the individual and continually evaluated so that the child always has access to things they enjoy while they are learning –examples include swinging, access to a favorite toy, watching a video, or a sensory activity. Positive rewards encourage the person to continue using the skill. Over time this leads to meaningful behavior change.
Does ABA therapy stops children with autism from stimming?

This is a common misconception. Our approach to ABA therapy focuses on teaching your child new skills needed to live an independent life. We don't believe in taking things away—behaviors or otherwise—unless they may cause a harm to themselves or others.

Often, a child will be given stimming with an item as the reinforcement (reward) to engage in a new skill they do not have in their repertoire.

The emphasis of ABA therapy is on expanding and giving more to the child, not taking things away. When the child has more skills, they have more opportunities to successfully access the things they enjoy.

For example: if a child enjoys jumping on a trampoline and holding a light-up ball in their hand, because they love watching the lights bounce in front of their eyes. Our goal is to teach the child the new skill of requesting to jump on the trampoline and asking for this specific ball. We're here to teach new skills and reinforce their progress.

Does ABA try to eliminate differences?

ABA therapy isn’t aimed at removing autistic children’s neurodiversity but rather at enabling their independence.

Our approach to ABA therapy is not about changing the unique and exciting ways that an autistic person looks at the world. Instead, it's about empowering them with the tools they need to see the world in a way that brings out the best in them—and to have the world see more of the beautiful person they are.

ABA therapy gave my autistic child a voice, and he has learned how to be more resilient to the changing world around him.

He no longer has obstacles holding him back. ABA is about removing barriers and improving lives. Every child is unique and special and should be encouraged to have whatever quirky interests they desire—even if it differs from their same-age peers.

This is celebrated and supported within the Triangle ABA treatment model. The world needs children on the spectrum to make it a more diverse and beautiful place to live. Let’s make sure we empower them with everything they could possibly need to make their footprint on this world stick!
