How Does Age and Amount of ABA Effect Autism Sy​mptoms?


Researchers at Montclair University have assessed the effect of age and amount of ABA on the symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This research was conducted using 160 participants under the age of 40 months. Participants were evaluated before and after ABA treatment using the Bayley Scales, VB-MAPP, and CARS-2. The results of the study concluded that significant improvements were shown across the Bayley Scales and VB-MAPP as well as a reduction in ASD symptoms. This study clearly demonstrated that early intervention ABA therapy significantly improves skills and reduces symptoms of ASD.
