Living with Autism

As a child living with autism, Antos barely talked before working with the ABA DrOmnibus app. He answered “yes” or “no” to questions from his teacher, but never communicated with his peers. While showing an interest in playing with the class, he struggled to understand the rules of a group.

After several weeks of working with ABA DrOmnibus, Antos mother reported that her son was more eager to go to school and his behavior had improved significantly, giving him the opportunity to establish closer relationships with his peers.


Autism Definition

According to the World Health Organization, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) “refers to a range of conditions characterized by some degree of impaired social behavior, communication and language, and a narrow range of interests and activities that are both unique to the individual and carried out repetitively.” The umbrella diagnosis of ASD includes autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified, and Asperger syndrome. Symptoms usually begin to appear in early childhood between 2 and 3 years of age.


ASD Facts and Statistics

  • Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder.
  • 1 in 160 children worldwide have autism spectrum disorder.
  • Boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism.  
  • Symptoms vary greatly from one person to another.
  • ASD is treatable.
  • Early intervention is key.

Treatment for ASD

While no cure is available, early interventions such as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) have been shown to greatly improve symptoms. ABA therapy focuses on improving social interactions, maintaining positive behaviors, and learning new skills; it is based on proven theories of learning and behavior.
