The speech therapists and psychologists pay the considerable attention to the work with children, who have autism spectrum disorders.
The autism is a disorder not only of childhood, but of the autistic traits remain even during the whole person’s life.
The autism - is not a sentence.
The autism - is a psychological disorder that appears during the first 3 years of child life.
The autism is called pervasive, i.e.penetrating or general development disorder that means the disorder of all the spheres of mental activity, including the ability of environmental perception, speech development, emotions, cogitation, and peculiarities of contact with people and behavior in general.
Nowadays ABA-therapy (applied behavioral analysis, which is based on the theoretical works of Skinner“The Behavior of Organisms”, 1938, “Verbal Behavior”, 1957), is the most effective method of work with children, who have autistic spectrum disorders.
This approach is the only one, the effectiveness of which were proved in the course of scientific researches.
ABA–therapy is considerably differs from the other psychological and pedagogical approaches. It is based on the principles of reinforcement of required behavior and weakening of undesired one.
ABA is successfully used in work with autistic children, although there are also a lot of other methodologies and concepts.
According to the “Autism Speaks” organization, today, 1 case of autism is diagnosed among 76 young children. 10 years ago, the statics showed rather other figures: 1 child among 150 young children. The need for scientifically proved effective approaches is rapidly increasing, in connection with the increase of children, who need special educational methodology.
Almost every person knows such people, who bring up special child with difficulties in development. You must admit that it is not easy at all! That is why the specialist of our center use best endeavors to inform parents and families of special children about ABA-therapy aims. We hope that the use of modern approaches in training and education correction of special children will help your child to become independent and successful person.
