There are several types of therapies used to treat autism, including applied behavior analysis (ABA), occupational therapy, physical therapy, sensory integration therapy, and assistive technology.
The effectiveness of treatment depends on a variety of factors, such as where your child falls on the autism spectrum, along with what treatment interventions your child participates in. Treatment plans are generally multidisciplinary, may involve parent-mediated interventions, and will target your child's individual needs.
