Top Autism Treatments & Working with Professionals
There is no single best intervention for someone on the autism spectrum. Studies have consistently shown that early intervention is very important. We also know that a variety of therapies combined to meet the individual needs of the person works best.
Currently Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has been shown to be one of the most effective treatments for autism. Mental Health: A Report of the Surgeon General states, "Thirty years of research demonstrated the efficacy of applied behavioral methods in reducing inappropriate behavior and in increasing communication, learning, and appropriate social behaviors. The goal of behavioral management is to reinforce desirable behaviors and reduce undesirable ones."
