26 May Why do I need to do ABA when I already do occupational therapy and speech therapy?
Learners with ASD often benefit from different types of early interventions such as OT, speech therapy, and ABA. ABA has a different focus to understand behavior and improve the quality of life through individually designed treatment plans. ABA is also more frequent and intensive than OT and speech therapy. A learner can receive all of these services and the therapists will coordinate efforts to provide the best services possible.
