ABA Therapy is not only effective with children who have ASD, there are many other conditions that can also be effectively treated with ABA. The conditions listed below can also be treated with our ABA services:
Cerebral Palsy is a disorder that typically forms before birth when the brain develops irregularly. The individual may face muscular challenges, developmental delays, and speech disorders. Treatments vary depending on severity, but ABA therapy can always be beneficial to the patient.
Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders
This occurs when a mother consumes alcohol while her child is in the womb. The child can be born with a number of disorders, including physical abnormalities, behavioral issues, and developmental delays. ABA cannot fix all of these problems, but it can be instrumental in improving behavior and developmental delays.
Landau-Kleffner Syndrome is a rare childhood disorder that typically shows up between the ages of 3-7. Children will develop normally at first, then begin to lose skills in comprehension and speech due to effects on the brain. ABA works to gain those skills back and walks with the client as they achieve small accomplishments each day.
Muscular Distrophy is the term that applies to 30 genetic diseases that affect the control of movement by weakening the skeletal muscles. Signs of MD can be seen in newborns, but also may not be noticed until middle age or older. The gross/fine motor skills category of ABA therapy can be helpful in gaining strength and skills for these patients.
A genetic disorder is when an individual has an inherited abnormality in his or her DNA. Different types include Down Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Huntington’s Disease, and many more. When ABA therapy is implemented in these patients’ lives, it can help to improve social, cognitive, comprehensive, and other skills.
