September 20 Stephan, Linda. Denver II. Modestor Junior College. Efficacy of ABA programme for children with autism to improve general development, language and adaptive behaviour.
Indian Journal of Positive Psychology. The purpose of this study was to monitor the effects of applied behavioral analysis ABA versus traditional treatment in thirty children with autism. The study found that ABA had a significant improvement in symptom manifestation and improvements in specific behaviors. Significant changes were also seen in the intervention group in the overall CARS scores.
No significant differences were seen in the control group save language however, improvements were not as great as that of the intervention group. One of the strengths of this study is the length of the intervention. One year allows a normal progression of yearly academics in school and a standardized time frame that is identical to that of how ABA would continue if implemented. A follow up testing would have benefitted this study to show the potential lasting benefits of the intervention.
Another restraint on the power of this study is the small population size. You must be logged in to post a comment. Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
