What is Behaviour Therapy?
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is a type of behaviour therapy that applies research-based learning to improve behaviours vital to social interaction and, eventually, promote independent living among children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). With 40 years of documented research, ABA’s efficacy as a kind of behavioural therapy has been proven to help children develop adaptive behaviour, as well as improve language skills and academic performance. Utilizing the following methods applied in ABA, our experienced behavioural therapists at iFit Group will be able to come up with procedures and interventions that rely on data collection and analysis. Through this, we can help your children:
- Increase positive behaviours
- Learn new skills
- Adapt behaviours for new environments or specific situations
Every child is unique, our ABA program does not apply a one-size-fits-all approach. Rather, our evidence-based therapy will be tailored to fit your child’s specific needs and situation. Aside from empowering children to reach their full potential, our ABA program can also offer support to parents, carers, and even school staff caring for children with ASD.

Areas to work:
- Communicate with people more effectively, such as teaching them to ask for things they want in a clear and specific manner.
- Show more interest in people sound them.
- Gain more focus at school.
- Minimize or stop self-harming behaviours, as well as manage tantrums and outbursts.
Behaviour Therapy with IFit Group In working with iFit Group’s professional behavioural therapists, parents, carers, and teachers will have the support they need to determine which behaviours need changing. Goals and expected outcomes can be much clearer as ABA therapy establishes clear and objective ways to measure behavioural improvements and changes. Since ABA involves procedures and interventions, this type of behaviour therapy works best with constant monitoring and evaluation. We can also assist with a regular review of your child’s progress until it is no longer necessary for them to undergo behaviour modification. [Call Us Today]
Development of Social Skills
Our ABA program focuses on instructional methods that highlight your child’s skills, reinforce positive behaviour, and lessen instances of behavioural issues. We also use a highly structured but diverse combination of methods that can help your child while ensuring that they’re having fun as they learn.
Our ABA program for developing social skills is administered through a group setting designed to address your child’s individual needs. Each child will be carefully grouped based on their age and abilities, as well as their developmental pace. Through reciprocal play and socialisation, your child can:
- Appropriately respond to and interact with peers
- Learn how to follow directions, observe, and recognize body language
- Develop conversational, social initiation, and negotiation skills
- Learn how to manage stress better
- Experience making and maintaining friendships
In these uncertain times, i-Fit Group also offers telehealth and healthcare services at home. With our flexible services, we come to where you live, work, and play. Not only does this provide comfort and convenience, but you can also be sure that you and your children are safe while they undergo ABA therapy.
Our home healthcare and telehealth services are also applicable to our other programs.
Early intervention is crucial in your child’s physical, emotional, and social development. While ABA therapy works for a range of ages, children as young as 18 to 30 months old can begin undergoing ABA therapy when diagnosed with ASD. This is because behaviours are easier to shape and modify before a child establishes habits and behaviours that may be more difficult to change at an older age.
At the same time, early intervention increases your child’s likelihood of building vital developmental skills such as language, communication, and social skills. Children who have also received early intervention ABA therapy are more likely to raise their IQ score and develop better motor skills.
We understand that parents or adult carers may feel hesitant in letting their young child undergo any kind of therapy. Our behavioural therapists at iFit Group value transparency, so you can expect to receive constant updates about your child’s progress. Moreover, you will also receive the support and resources you need to efficiently supplement therapy in a home setting. [Book a Consultation With Our Behavioural Therapists]
