Our Method & Approach - Autism Partnership Singapore

WHY AUTISM PARTNERSHIPS (AP)?

Founded By Globally Recognized Experts

World-class Service Provider

At AP, we adopt our very own unique style of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) known as the AP Method. The AP Method has been developed for over 40 years and is the result of the hundreds of clinicians working around the world.

Based on Clinical Research and Evidence

Data and Progress Driven

ABA is based upon more than 50 years of scientific investigation with individuals affected by a wide range of behavioral and developmental disorders and has become the most widely recognized and scientifically proven treatment for Autism

Effective with Promising Results

Leaf, R., Taubman, M., McEachin, J., Leaf, J., & Tsuji, K. (2011). A Program Description of a Community-Based Intensive Behavioral Intervention Program for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Education and Treatment of Children, 34(2), 259-285.

A study conducted in 2011 has provided strong evidence on how quality and intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) can help children with autism.

The study unprecedentedly proves that quality Intensive Behavior Intervention, adopted alone, can yield the best treatment outcome, which includes the following:
– No longer has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder
– With an IQ of 85 and above (normal range or higher)
– Become indistinguishable from peers
– Complete mainstream primary school with little or no support

We Manage Challenging Behaviours

Many of our students have different levels of challenging behavior. These problems may include inattention, aggression, rigidities and self-stimulation. These behaviors do not only add stress to their domestic life, they also obstruct children’s learning. It is critical to deal with these issues to maximize learning opportunities and teach our students how to learn effectively. Decades of research in functional analysis of behavior equips us with effective tools to deal with the most challenging behavioral problems.

Intensive and Consistent for Maximum Results

Howard, et al (2005) conducted a 14-month study and looked at three treatment groups.

The results showed that children in the ABA group made more gains in ALL AREAS than both the other groups added together.

This was an important finding as it is often cited that only the number of hours you commit to ABA matters.
