      What is the ABA Early Intervention Program?
      Our ABA Early Intervention Program is an intensive, short-term program for families of young children with autism spectrum disorder. ABA stands for applied behavior analysis. This therapy is proven to help kids with autism learn new skills to increase positive behaviors (like communicating and interacting with others) and reduce challenging behaviors (like tantrums).

      Kids up to age 6 attend the program 4 days a week for 12 weeks, either morning or afternoon. Behavioral therapists and a speech and language pathologist (SLP) work with your child to build their skills. While your child gets high-quality therapy, you and other caregivers learn from behavior therapists, SLPs and family advocates:

      -New ways to communicate with your child
      -Skills to help your child learn
      -Skills to understand the reasons for your child’s challenging behavior and how to help them
      -What services your child needs and how to find them

      The program takes place at Seattle Children’s Autism Center.
