ABA Intervention | Our Students' ABA Therapy Progress | Autism ASD Treatment

The Students’ ABA Progress Section showcases the progress made by students in Autism Partnership Singapore.

Jamie has been receiving full day intensive ABA training at AP SG since 2 years and 10 months old (January 2020). Before receiving ABA intervention, his parents shared that he even though he knew some words, he only used his words to communicate very sparingly. 

He often relied on grabbing their arm or taking them to something he wanted, without making eye contact. Although Jamie was generally able to listen to parents, he would cry and have meltdowns daily, especially when his requests were denied. 

This was a concern for parents. Jamie only liked playing with his older brother and parents but not his younger sister and peers. He would often push them away and scream when they approach him. 

Puneeth started ABA intervention at AP Singapore at the age of 3 years 3 months. Before ABA intervention, Puneeth’s attention was short and fleeting. He was not able to sustain sitting down for long, and this made it difficult for him to learn. His eye contact was also minimal and he would either gesture or talk to himself without directing it to others. As he was not communicating, he often did not get what he wanted. This was a frustration for his parents. Often, he would also bang his head, cry and scream, and throw a big tantrum when he was being denied or when his toys were being taken away.

Jasper began ABA training at AP Singapore in Nov 2018 at the age of 4 years old. At that time, he found it very challenging to follow instructions as he was not very good at listening, remembering and processing the information he has heard. He is also limited in his language and communication skills. In these series of videos, we share fun activities that helped him work on his limitations! 

The new skills Jasper acquired have benefited him greatly in becoming a more successful and independent learner in school and at home.
