Key elements of successful ABA treatment: Parents Involvement (Autism Partnership Hong Kong)
Applied behavior analysis therapy (ABA) is a well-known, scientifically proven intervention for increasing functional skills in children with autism or developmental delays. While children can make great gains with ABA therapy, the children who make the most gains are the ones who have parents who are actively involved in their child’s therapy. Being actively involved doesn’t mean you need to observe every session and/or attempt to run your own sessions at home. However, what you can do is to carry over the skills your child is learning in therapy and then practice them during your child’s everyday routine.

Communication Temptation is a program whereby environments or situations are arranged in order to tempt children to communicate. The objectives of Communication Temptation are to increase a student's desire to communicate, make communication fun, establish the power of communication and increase the spontaneous use of language.
We have been working on expanding speech using Communication Temptation with one of our kids at the centre, Zi Yan. Check out his progress in this video!
