Children with Autism learn and grow through Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA therapy when their treatment plan can be followed consistently at home as well as during sessions with their behavioral therapist. Your child’s therapist will often work with you to ensure you have a good grasp of the treatment plan. Here are some additional ABA therapy tips to help guide you when practicing at home.
Exaggerate movements, facial expressions and exclamations to encourage laughter and even a little silliness when working with your child. You want your reinforcement of learned skills to be lighthearted in addition to being very clear for your child with Autism. Treating these opportunities for practice as a chore won’t motivate either of you.
Use Fun Activities
Play games like hide and seek, blow bubbles, prepare a special snack or choose another activity you and your child may enjoy together. By making ABA skills practice enjoyable, your child may find it easier to cooperate, and the experience will be less stressful for both of you.
Remember Your Role
Yes, you’re a supportive partner to your child in ABA but also a parent to a child with Autism. Cut sessions short if either of you isn’t at your best. Prioritize your child’s needs, and your own, to ensure an experience that’s productive.
