This is the age where children begin to have the awareness and life experiences that allow them to start processing their actions and the world they live in. ABA programs that target specific developmental areas and utilize creative, cumulative concepts can help children begin to experience the progress and milestones they crave. Intensive therapy can make it possible for autistic children in the elementary school age range to begin to interact with their world and stimuli around them. This communication may not always be in the way we are accustomed, but it can be the starting point in the critical assimilation process that will dramatically improve quality of life in the future.
In our experience, home-based ABA therapy allows children and their families to address autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in comfortable surroundings, where stress can be reduced and therapists can utilize familiar activities to draw out their clients. This is also a stage where our therapists welcome the opportunity to work with our kids’ teachers and school administrators to provide consistent training, messaging and goal setting at home and school.
