ABA Therapy can be Fun, Natural and Generalizable!

February 19, 2018



There is a common misconception that Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) therapy in Malaysia is too rigid. However, at Autism Link Malaysia, our ABA approach is child-centered and naturalistic. We utilise many ways to keep our therapy sessions natural, fun and generalizable!


Here are some of the methods we use at Autism Link Malaysia:

  • Using enthusiastic tones

  • Varying teaching environments and settings

  • Using a wide range of instructions

  • Utilising preferred, interesting, age-appropriate and functional materials

  • Closing programs that are already mastered to ensure students are not bored

  • Maintaining a high success rate

  • Using the student's preferences in tasks or as reinforcers

  • Interspersing tasks

  • Using varied and natural reinforcers

  • Using language that is as natural as possible

  • Reducing structure as much as possible

With all of the above, we believe that children can learn more effectively in a fun setting and learn how to generalise these skills in real life situations.
