It is important to look for scientific evidence that validates each treatment for children with autism. One of the models with the most scientific evidence in favor of its good results is the ABA-based therapeutic intervention model.
Applied Behavior Analyzes anticipates intensive training of its professionals to use complex procedures that allow teaching new skills and managing behavior. We can also hear references to the model as the Lovaas method, since this scientist has been one of the pioneers of the ABA in Los Angeles (1987). The principles of Behavior Analysis can be applied to analyze and modify behaviors to plan the teaching of different skills.
The bases of the ABA model in the treatment of autism are:
• Sessions structured in discrete attempts
• Programming of supports that are gradually withdrawn
• Use of effective enhancers
• Professionals with certified training
• Individualized intervention program
• Record of the evolution of the treatment
