ABA is widely recognized as a safe and effective treatment for autism. It has been endorsed by a number of state and federal agencies, including the U.S. Surgeon General and the New York State Department of Health. Over the last decade, the nation has seen a particularly dramatic increase in the use of ABA to help persons with autism live happy and productive lives. In particular, ABA principles and techniques can foster basic skills such as looking, listening and imitating, as well as complex skills such as reading, conversing and understanding another person’s perspective.

Practitioners of applied behavior analysis (ABA) aim to improve socially important behavior by using interventions that are based upon principles of learning theory and that have been evaluated in experiments using reliable and objective measurement. ABA methods are intended to support persons with autism spectrum disorders in many ways:
Given the complexity of Autism Spectrum Disorder and the challenges parents face, it is often beneficial and even necessary for them to implement intervention strategies in the home or community. Direct parent involvement has become widely accepted as part of a total autism intervention program (Iovannone, Dunlap, Huber, & Kincaid, 2003; Levy, Kim, & Olive, 2006; National Research Council, 2001). Research has demonstrated that when parents serve as active participants in their child’s treatment, positive results are obtained (e.g. Aldred, Green, & Adams, 2004; McConachie, Randle, Hammal, & Le Couteur, 2005; Symon, 2005).
