1:1 ABA Therapy | Quality & Effective ABA Treatment for Autism ASD | ABA Singapore | BCBA Board Certified Behavior Analyst | Our Method & Approach - Autism Partnership Singapore

Our Unique Approach: Autism Partnership Method

Autism Partnership Method (APM) is highly individualized, child-friendly, holistic and focused on "in-the-moment analysis" and "clinical judgement"​.

At Autism Partnership (AP), we adopt our own treatment method called, Autism Partnership Method (APM). APM is a progressive model of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) that is highly individualized, child-friendly, holistic, and focused on “in-the-moment analysis” and “clinical judgment.”


Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a high-quality treatment approach for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). It is based on more than 60 years of scientific research and effective clinical practice. ABA is the most widely recognized and scientifically proven treatment for ASD.

We provide quality and effective ABA treatment that is highly flexible yet systematic and compassionate allowing us to meet the individual needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

In contrast to conventional ABA, Autism Partnership Method (APM) is a highly flexible yet systematic and compassionate approach that allows us to meet the individual needs of children with ASD.


Our programs are highly clinically driven and utilize procedures that have been developed out of working with children and from our research center. We aim not solely to maximize each child’s progress under our care but also to provide guidance and support to the family.

 

Our curriculum is all-inclusive focusing on critical foundation skills including managing behaviors, communication, social, learning-how-learn, and self-help skills. We teach in a fun and innovative way with natural reinforcements that motivate children to learn and make rapid progress.

With a multi-tier supervision system and a team of qualified and highly trained staff, we constantly evaluate the learning objectives of your child’s program to ensure progress. Additionally, we conduct regular training to ensure active learning and provide the best quality of ABA therapy based on our APM.

We believe that children can make amazing gains with a highly individualized and intensive learning program.​

Autism Partnership Method (APM)
addresses CHALLENGING BEHAVIORS

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.

Autism Partnership Method (APM)
reveals PROMISING RESULTS

This 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

Autism Partnership Method (APM)
provides INTENSITY & CONSISTENCY

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. However, the research has shown that the type of treatment you choose also affects the treatment outcome significantly.
