Yes we do! The most effective and evidence based practice for individuals with autism is applied behavior analysis (ABA). Practitioners of ABA are board certified or licensed professionals who observe, measure and change behaviors that are socially significant and sensitive to the rules of the local community. Evidence-based methods are utilized, behavior data is collected and used as a tool for decision making, and each behavior-change strategy applied is monitored closely for effectiveness. Some of the basic procedures used in ABA learning programs include shaping, prompting, differential reinforcement, errorless learning, extinction, and generalization. These programs may be adjusted based on the techniques used to “fit the individual’s learning needs” and response to intervention.
Depending on the program (Psychology, Counseling or Social Work) a counselor’s focus in therapy can be very different. Ask follow-up questions so that you are informed.
Counselors usually have an idea of how long clients attend therapy with them. Depending on what you are looking for, this can be an important question to ask.
