Early intervention is the best way to support the development and wellbeing of children with disability, ASD, developmental delay or other additional needs. It can help children develop the skills they need to take part in everyday activities. Sometimes, children who get early intervention need less or no support as they get older.
Applied Behaviour Analysis is a systematic approach that applies psychological principles of how people learn to help change an undesired behaviour. It is also used to help someone learn and maintain new behaviours that facilitate healthy functioning in real life situations. Essentially, if a behaviour can be observed and measured, then ABA principles can be used to either increase or decrease the frequency and/or intensity of that behaviour.
