A Better Tomorrow For Autism

Did you know that 1 in every 88 children and 1 out of every 54 boys in the U.S. has an autism spectrum disorder? ??Right now, there is no universally accepted cause, or cure. The subject of autism is becoming more widely accepted as a topic of open discussion - and many people are making an effort to educate themselves about it due to the rising rates of children being diagnosed. ??People with autism often interpret the world around them in a drastically different way from the rest of us. Their relationship with the environment is frequently misunderstood as a lack of intelligence, but it is in fact a different type of interaction which can benefit from applied behavior analysis. ABA refers to the use of individualized and systematic teaching methods. ??Autism in Action created step-by-step ABA instructions that parents and teachers can understand and effectively use to teach important behavior, communication, self-care, readiness, and social skills on a daily basis at home, school, and in the community - these resources provide a roadmap on what to do and what to say. Parents and teachers are often mistakenly under the impression they cannot use ABA procedures effectively. Autism in Action is dedicated to providing the tools so that they can.?? Scientific research shows that learning can be drastically improved through the use of Applied Behavior Analysis, or ABA. With the growing need for building quality learning experiences for individuals with autism, it is a priority that schools and families learn how to use ABA procedures as a part of everyday life. The mission of Autism in Action is to "fill in the gap" for parents and teachers and promote the wider use of ABA. ??Autism in Action is striving to provide the tools that parents and teachers of individuals with autism need in their quest for knowledge and understanding:?
