How Can ABA and Speech Therapy Help In Autism
Treatment?
  • To understand the different treatment options for
    people with autism it is important to note that
    the diagnosis of their condition is necessary.
    The doctor will conduct a thorough analysis of
    the signs and symptoms of the patient before
    suggesting a therapy.
  • For better treatment, health professionals use a
    combination two treatments namely Applied
    Behaviour Analysis and speech therapy as they are
    the best treatment plans for autism. In ABA, the
    therapist will target particular behaviours that
    help a person or a child to have socially
    significant instructions. The behaviours could
    include, learning a language, reading, play, and
    other leisure skills. These behaviours are then
    analysed by a therapist to see how much has a
    child or an adult with autism learned.

How Can ABA and Speech Therapy Help In Autism
Treatment?
  • ABA is used in combination with speech therapy to
    enhance the communication channel between the
    instructor and the student. When someone has
    autism it is usually hard for them to learn vocal
    speech, this is one of the biggest obstacles in
    dealing with children with autism.
  • Speech therapy helps a person, particularly a
    child to learn a language. The therapist will
    motivate a child with autism to associated
    feelings with words and objects. This method
    allows the child to learn the names of different
    objects easily. In this treatment method, the
    child is not limited to focus on labels like
    bottle, toys, cats, dogs. Instead, the child is
    taught to use the language to make requests and
    communicate with other people.
  • Children and adults with autism will be able to
    learn different behaviours and practice them in
    their routine. Moreover, children will be able to
    learn sign language and picture communication as
    a part of speech therapy. The aim of using both
    Applied Behaviour Analysis ABA and speech therapy
    is to enable a child or an adult with autism to
    communicate with each other, with their parents
    and doctors on their own.

An Overview of Concussion Treatment
  • Rest is the best way to treat the concussion if
    the doctor diagnosis a minor concussion. You have
    to avoid physical activity that can put a strain
    on the injury. Avoid stress and try to stay calm
    mentally to avoid worsening the symptoms.
    Essentially the doctor might recommend avoiding
    sports and workouts.
  • Reduce thinking and stressing out over different
    issues. Avoid spending too much time on a mobile
    phone, television and a computer. If you need
    some time off work or school then its
    recommended to take a few days off. When the
    symptoms start to wear off, the doctor might
    suggest light exercise like a walk. Once all the
    signs of a concussion are gone, the doctor might
    recommend that you consider a minor workout, try
    reading a book and avoid mobile phone and
    computers as much as possible.
  • If you have headaches and nausea, talk to your
    doctor. You might need medications for concussion
    treatment to help with headaches, dizziness, and
    nausea. Paracetamol might be used to help with
    the sharp headaches. Avoid using aspirin and
    ibuprofen as they can lead to bleeding.

Concussion Treatment
  • Before treatment for the concussion is started
    the doctor will need to determine the extent of
    the damage to the brain. For this purpose, CT
    scans, and other tests might be conducted. The CT
    scans will help the doctor identify serious
    damage to the skull and to locate any internal
    bleeding or clogged veins. If there is no serious
    damage the doctor will recommend rest and some
    paracetamol for pain relief.
  • Refrain from Physical Activity
  • If you or your loved one has suffered a
    concussion without any serious damage, the
    treatment will include plenty of rest and avoid
    physical excursions like working out and
    exercising. This allows the brain to limit its
    activities and give it time to reduce
    inflammation in the brain.
  • Avoid Using your Phone
  • Another concussion treatment that a doctor
    recommends is to avoid using cellphones,
    computer, and watching television for long hours.
    Refrain from using any electronic devices when
    you are suffering from a concussion because they
    put stress on your brain.
