FAQ

You Ask - I Answer

  • How many lessons a week?

    Research recommendations suggest ABA therapy should be intensive (20 - 40 weekly hours), individualised and comprehensive to target a wide range of skills and therapy should be conducted in the form of one-to-one format before transitioning to groups or other natural settings (Maurice, Green & Foxx, 2001). However, with a child that attends school, or other training, it is understandably hard to achieve this. At ABLE, we are flexible to work around you and your child’s schedule to achieve significant outcomes from our ABA therapy.
  • Who is ABA therapy for? Do I need a diagnosis for ABA therapy?

    Using ABA therapy, we aim to work with children as young as 18 months to adolescents to teach functional life skills for engaging independently in activities of daily living. ABA therapy can work for ANYONE who’s willing to learn new skills. It is suitable for children who have (or suspected to have) behavioral, social-emotional issues, and/or with special learning needs: Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Asperger’s Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Anxiety disorder, Developmental Delay, Language delay etc. Children that come to ABLE do not need to have a diagnosis for training. We work with any individuals that want to acquire and maintaining skills, and improving behaviors. Primarily the focus will be to equip and improve children’s social, play, language, academic, self-management skills in a one therapist to one student ratio or in small groups.
  • When Should I Start ABA Therapy?

    Since signs for ASD or other problem behaviours come to light at around 18 months but assessments may not be done until at least 2-3 years old. It doesn't matter whether a child has a diagnosis or not but it is recommended to start ABA therapy as early as possible. It also means that the child has fewer opportunities and time for problematic behaviours to develop and they can learn the appropriate behaviours from the start.

    Vietze & Laz (2018) provided ABA therapy to 106 toddlers under 40 months, with an average child receiving a mean number of 290 hours of 1:1 instruction (approximately 1 year of therapy with 5 hours a week). When they reassessed their performance, they showed statistically significant improvements across all areas of functioning including IQ, communication, motor, socio-emotional, adaptive behaviours as well as a reduction in ASD symptoms and barriers to learning. Other studies have shown that children who received ABA therapy before 4 years of age make greater improvement compared with children older than 4 years that received ABA. (Lovaas & Smith, 1988; Turner & Stone, 2007).
Parenting Tips

Give child a high-five, they go far in life

Tolerance to surgical masks

Flu season is now at its peak and recent cases of coronavirus in Hong Kong are worrying. It is imperative that we wear a mask for protection. However many parents are troubled by their child's inappropriate use masks or refusal to wear masks. ABLE therapists would like to share some strategies in teaching personal hygiene and build tolerance in wearing masks.

Work O.T or on Saturday?Giving choices

I choose to work over time. Giving options for children to choose from motivates them to follow through with it. Even if both choices are horrible.




Share and Turn Take

“Sharing is caring” is something we would love to teach our young children. However, many children refuse to share, because children at young age are at the stage of learning how to satisfy their own need first. Then how can we teach them this concept? Instead of forcing their to give away what is supposed to be theirs, let’s teach them to take turns!
