Great Apps To Help With ABA Therapy

Applied Behavior Analysis, or ABA, is designed to help improve communication skills, attention, focus, memory, and social skills while limiting “problem” behaviors in children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder. There are many resources available for your computer or smartphone to help your child gain and improve on their positive behaviors and limit those that could be harmful or impede on their learning.

Autism Education (AutEdu)
This app focuses on communication, specifically between families and educators. Through this app, both parties work to understand autism and promote positive behaviors inside the home and at school functions.

With this app, auditory and visual stimuli are connected. This allows the child to learn these associations, discover more of the world around them, and become familiar with these sounds.

Proloquo2Go – Symbol-based AAC
Those with autism who are non-verbal can greatly benefit from this app. Essentially, the goal here is to help foster language development and improve upon communication skills. The app can be personalized through different settings and vocabulary choices and is easy for anyone from a parent to a therapist to use.
