What if my child does not have autism?
The term ABA is often associated with autism. However, the principles of ABA can be used for individuals with other diagnoses including: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, Oppositional defiant disorder, traumatic brain injury sufferers, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and intellectual disabilities.
Due to its wide-reaching scope of practice, ABA can be used for any individual who may benefit from therapy that will aid in increasing healthy positive behaviours in many domains.
What is the Ontario Autism Program?
The Ontario Autism Program (OAP) offers support to all eligible families of children and youth on the autism spectrum. Children and youth who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by a qualified professional are eligible for the program. Children receive services and supports until the age of 18. https://www.ontario.ca/page/ontario-autism-program

I'd like to sign my child up for ABA however, I am not sure what goal I want to work on.
