Autism is a condition with a scope that covers a wide range of symptoms and severity. Although there is no actual cure, it can be managed at varying levels, in both children and adults.
Autism therapy can take on many different forms, dependant upon the individual, as some people only require minor assistance, where as others need extensive, round the clock aid.
One of the best types of therapy is known as Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA); this concentrates on improving the communication and social skills, gives step-by-step motivational learning and applies early intensive behavioural intervention.
Occupational therapy focuses more on helping those who struggle with important everyday tasks, whilst speech therapy assists with general interaction.
Everybody deserves to have the best possible quality of life and with the right on-going therapy, both children and adults with autism can achieve this goal.
