The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and many other Scientific and Professional Health Care Agencies, recognize Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as an essential therapy for children with autism and other developmental disorders. ABA has become widely accepted among health care professionals and is used in many homes, schools and clinics. Furthermore it is widely accepted that parents, teachers, and other caregivers can be taught to do their own ABA with minimal supervision. I also know this to be true because I have taught ABA to countless parents, teachers, and health care professionals during my 40 + year career.
The use of tech devices like the iPad has been a relatively recent development that has made it even easier for parents, teachers, and other para professionals to do their own ABA in a classroom, and at home. Parents, teachers, and others who care for children with Neuro-developmental disorders like Autism rely on verbal directions to control behavior and teach new skills. Children who have Autism learn best visually and often find speech adverse.

ABA is an effective treatment for Autism but unfortunately too many children on the spectrum are not receiving ABA because of a shortage of qualified providers and access to apps.
