International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v1 n4 p301-311 2005
There is increasing evidence that Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an effective, and often superior, method to teach children with Autism Spectrum Disorders ASD), than other methods. The Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center of Rutgers University (DDDC) has been using ABA for more than thirty years to teach toddlers, young children, adolescents and adults with ASD. The DDDC is a multi-division center that blends research and clinical applications in ABA, and provides teaching and training opportunities for the University and general public. Preliminary outcome data support the effectiveness of ABA in changing the lives of the students that the DDDC serves in a very positive way.
