Signs your child may have autism

Autism is the most common condition of the Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), a category of neurological disorders marked by noticeable impairment in areas of development. It is typically identified within the first three years of a child’s life. Raising a child is a rewarding and challenging time for any family, but when children are faced with the behavioral or developmental issues associated with autism, sometimes extra support and guidance is needed.

If you suspect your child may have autism, your child may be non-responsive to other people, avoid eye contact, or engage in repetitive and sometimes risky behavior. Additional common signs of autism may consist of:

  • Difficulty socializing or communicating
  • Repetitive behaviors
  • Obsessive or severely limited activities and interests

An empathy-based approach

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy uses a flexible, empathy-based approach consisting of psychological, educational, and developmental techniques specifically tailored to the needs of the child. 

Studies have shown that ABA techniques are a proven treatment and the method of choice for treating individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at any level. Nearly all children with autism benefit from intensive ABA programs. Our Board-Certified Behavior Analysts and Behavioral Technicians use evidence-based practices to assist with:

Adaptive skills and independence

Language skills, play, and socialization

Minimizing challenging or risk behavior
