One therapy that’s effective for children with autism is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). ABA has been shown to improve social skills, communication skills, and reduce repetitive behaviors in autistic children. One study of children with autism showed that those who were given the treatment showed significant improvements.
Another therapy is music therapy. Music therapy can help children with autism improve communication and social skills. And it could also increase a child’s attention span when they are engaged in an activity like reading or drawing.
Another option is neurofeedback training. This type of therapy can be used to help lower anxiety levels and improve focus in autistic individuals.
Neurofeedback is also beneficial because it doesn’t require any drugs or invasive techniques to work.
Animal Assisted Training or AAT is a kind of therapy that uses animals like dogs to help a child feel more comfortable around people and talk about their feelings or emotional experiences easier. Animal-assisted therapy is often used as part of a team approach which includes other therapies like speech or occupational therapies.
