The lives of countless children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) could be changed forever with quality behavioral treatment. For this to become a reality, professionals must acknowledge, accept, and adopt more effective intervention strategies.
Additionally, we must improve access to this life-changing treatment.
We’re on a mission to change how we understand and treat ASD. Over 60 years of research and clinical experience show Progressive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA™) interventions like the Autism Partnership Method™ (AP Method™) create the most effective and positive outcomes for children with autism. However, not all ABA is equal, and many families receive substandard treatment.
The AP Method™
During the past 10 years, APF’s research team has published over 125 peer-reviewed articles, books, and book chapters. In addition to conducting research studies, the team has developed multiple training programs that have changed how treatment is delivered. In response to unanticipated needs due to COVID, the team adapted research projects to include treatment delivery through telehealth, and it had an impressive 18 studies published in peer-reviewed journals during the pandemic. These studies further validate the effectiveness of and critical need for better training and higher standards.
