Treatment approaches grounded in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) are now considered to be at the forefront of interventions for children with autism.
Although behavior analysis has unquestionably contributed substantially to autism treatment, behavior analysts could be more effective if their training incorporated knowledge and expertise from other scientifically sound, compatible disciplines.
Autism is not a purely behavioral disorder and the underlying causes are associated with a number of medical issues which when treated appropriately result in stabilization of the child’s medical condition and subsequent growth and improvement.
While ABA and biomedical practitioners have individually helped provide successful treatment models for autism, in developing a “Best Practices” Model, these interventions must work together to provide the best possibilities for successful outcomes.
Case studies will be presented in support of the behavioral-biomedical treatment model and recent research will be presented to show successful outcomes with these protocols.
