New Jersey has the highest incidence rate of autism in the country. As these numbers continue to climb, doctors are the first line of defense and play a crucial role in early identification and treatment. With support and guidance from physicians, parents of newly diagnosed children have an opportunity to begin receiving quality and intensive services at an early age.
When a parent comes face to face with an autism diagnosis, doctors can direct families to quality ABA providers so children can begin receiving services as early as possible. Applied behavior analysis (ABA) has decades of scientific reSEARCH supporting its efficacy as the safest and most effect treatment for autism.
ABA has been endorsed by both state and federal agencies, including the United States Surgeon General, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Institute of Mental Health, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the American Psychological Association, and the New York State Department of Health.
