Some girls show very obvious signs of autism, but more often girls with autism have subtle characteristics. They may work harder to fit in and their intelligence may enable them to mask the signs.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a proven, evidenced-based treatment for children with Autism. ABA treatment programs focus on applying behavior methods to help improve the behaviors, as well as the overall quality of life, of children with autism and other special needs. Behavior methods include teaching and rewarding children’s desired behaviors, such as following instructions, sharing, and using sounds/words to communicate, while at the same time not rewarding children’s problem behaviors.
