If your child has autism, there is a treatment that can bring about transformative change. It’s called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and it’s our method of choice at AIM Clinics.
“Applied Behavior Analysis” is a very long name for a very effective therapy.
ABA immerses your child in a caring, positive environment, where they work one-on-one with a therapist on a treatment schedule specially tailored for them.
Reduce aggression and cope with outbursts
Improve communication and language skills
Play with kids their own age
Focus on schoolwork
Get dressed, bathe and brush their teeth
Behavioral therapy works by reinforcing and rewarding helpful behaviors that improve learning and communication skills.
ABA is based in cause and effect. Children respond to a therapist’s request, and the therapist guides them toward positive, long-lasting behavioral change.
We can all agree that people like rewards—and children aren’t any different. Over time, the positive encouragement your child experiences reinforces meaningful progress.
Intensive ABA therapy gives your child the keys to control how they experience and react to the world around them. The things they learn at AIM Clinics will set them up for a bright future.
Applied Behavior Analysis is a big time commitment, but more than 20 scientific studies have demonstrated its results.
Both the U.S. Surgeon General and the American Psychological Association consider ABA an “evidence-based best-practice treatment”—meaning the evidence is in: ABA works hard for your child.
In a 2006 study, 21 children with autism spectrum disorder received 35–40 hours a week of ABA treatment for three years. Another 21 children took public school and special education classes, but did not receive ABA treatment.

A child with autism shouldn’t be bound by preconceived notions about the disorder. Small steps forward are happening every day. AIM Clinics can help your child follow in those footsteps.Apply now
