What autism looks like

What autism looks like

ASD is a complex condition characterized by communication, social, and behavioral problems. But that doesn’t mean that everyone with ASD looks the same.

The self-assessment questions above will help you know what to look out for. While more obvious signs include difficulties in communication, sensitivity to light, touch, and noise, a hard time managing behaviors, and repetitive behaviors like rocking and “stimming,” there are also more subtle symptoms that point to ASD: restrictive behaviors (like hyperfocusing on specific topics of interest), rigidity (needing specific routines, difficulty adapting), and hard time sharing someone else’s perspective.

Want clarity?

A professional assessment is essential to proper diagnosis.

ABA is learning through doing

ABA is learning through doing

So how can ABA help? A scientific discipline backed by over half a century of research, ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis. Its job: To help people with autism gain skills that allow them to better interact with the world around them — and themselves.

With one-on-one therapy, regular assessments, and parent/ caregiver support, ABA encourages clients to model desired skills, effectively creating momentum that puts your child on the trajectory to create real, lasting change in behavior.

Some skills ABA can teach:

  • Asking for desired items
    and answering questions

  • Interacting with a friend and
    playing with toys

  • Feeding, dressing
    and bathing skills

  • Reducing problem behaviors
    like tantrums and hitting


Haim is Different:

Empowering Without Intruding

At Haim ABA, our goal is to be as unintrusive as possible. So we’ll start small. Sometimes, it’s just a minor environment change that gives a child the space they need to grow. From there, we’ll build it out: If we see that clients need more support, we’ll layer treatments, carefully, consciously, helping clients meet goals with gentleness.

How ABA Works:

Child, parent, therapist, supervisor: For ABA to work, everyone needs to pitch in.
Together we work, together we celebrate!
