Behavioural method is not an attempt to 'cure' autism By Richard Hastings, PhD
ABA isn't actually an autism treatment, although it can be used to make a positive difference. It can be applied at any age and not just with children with more severe autism. It's also used in other areas of education and in health, and among other things good parenting uses its principles. ABA has been used to improve safety, train elite athletes and to increase productivity at work.
