Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects approximately 1 in every 54 children. We do not know what causes autism, but we know that applied behavior analysis (ABA) offers the best results in helping children improve verbal behavior and receptive language skills. The onset of symptoms tends to take place before children turn three. An online ABA therapy app can help children improve their language, play skills, and social skills.

Early Intervention with Digital ABA Tools
One of the core principles of ABA is the early implementation of intensive language and behavior intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Children are usually between two and three years old when they start ABA therapy, but some children being the program at as young as 14 months old. Starting ABA therapy at an older age is less common, but some children begin ABA therapy at between four and seven years of age. ABA teaches the following early language development skills:
- Receptive language development
- Verbal imitation
- Requesting and labeling objects
- Requesting and labeling actions
Digital Therapy Materials for ABA
Digital teaching materials have been rising significantly in popularity during the pandemic. These materials can improve sociodramatic and constructive play by encouraging appropriate communication. ABA therapy builds the generalization and verbal behavior skills children need in order to be successful in learning the following skills:
- Cause and effect
- Classroom skills
- Following complex and group directions
- Academic skills

Using the Verbal Matrix® for Online ABA Learning
Before you can expect your learner to identify an object by saying its name, they should be able to identify the object by pointing, touching, tapping, selecting, or indicating the object in question. The aba|tools Verbal Matrix®offers an extensive catalog of images sorted by function, feature, and class (FFC). With our receptive identification tools, teaching verbal behavior skills at home has never been easier.
Teaching Feature, Function, and Class
Teaching function, feature, and class (FFC) is a foundational approach to teaching vocabulary and meaning. Through FFC, the learner understands that an item is more than a name—it has a purpose. ABA language skills can make a meaningful difference in your child’s ability to communicate with the people around them
What Is Applied Behavior Analysis?
Applied behavior analysis (ABA) is recognized by the scientific community as an essential method of assisting children affected by autism spectrum disorders. ABA therapy is a formally identified program that leads learning processes to encourage more adaptive behaviors. For the past 30 years, teaching strategies grounded in ABA have made a considerable impact on families across the world. ABA therapy offers the opportunity to modify maladaptive behaviors and improve communication and language skills. One of the most important elements of ABA therapy is being able to apply knowledge in different contexts. Digital autism therapy tools can help your child move in the right direction.
