We truly understand how challenging it is to help your special child to develop their overall behaviour. Through this Applied Behavioural Analysis, we can support our autistic learners to make significant changes in various aspects of their life. These changes anyway do not occur very suddenly or quickly. A child has to follow the ongoing, intensive instruction which will build a step-by-step development progress. The progress rate shall differ from person to person based on their age, functioning, their adaptable expertise, family and many other factors. The example of primary skill area which usually develops is reading, whereas more attention and practice is essential to adapt and improve skill area like interactive capacity.
An effective process of applied behavioral analysis for autism does not have a stereotype method which will suit all. It should never be visualized as an approach with specific formula. Rather, it is the process where the therapist depends on customization of treatment approach based on the ability of the learner.
