As a parent of a child with autism, navigating the journey to find the best support and resources for your child can be overwhelming. Like every parent, you want what is best for your child, and ABA therapy can be the tool you use to unlock their full potential. However, before treatment can begin, an ABA assessment from a skilled professional is essential.

What Are ABA Assessments?

ABA assessments, also known as ABA testing or functional behavior assessment ABA, are crucial steps in the ABA therapy process. These assessments provide valuable insights into your child’s strengths, challenges, and individual needs, laying the foundation for a tailored treatment plan.

Types of ABA Assessments

There are several different types of functional behavioral assessments in ABA therapy that may be conducted, each serving a specific purpose, these ABA assessments may include: 


ABA therapists may conduct caregiver/parent interviews to gather information about your child’s behavior, developmental history, and family dynamics. This helps them develop a tailored plan for your child.


These standardized forms help assess specific skills or behaviors, providing a structured way to gather data.

Standardized Tests

Assessments like the ABLLS-R (Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills – Revised) or VB-MAPP (Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program) are commonly used in ABA assessments to evaluate language and communication skills in children with ASD.

Direct Observation

ABA therapists observe your child in various settings to assess their behavior and interactions with their environment.

Ecological Assessment

This assessment examines your child’s behavior within their natural environment, providing insight into how environmental factors influence behavior, leading to a more comprehensive and custom-tailored ABA therapy plan. 

While these behavior assessment methods differ, there are key factors that remain consistent across all types of ABA assessments. These include one-on-one caregiver interviews and skill and behavioral assessments, which allow ABA therapists to gain a comprehensive understanding of your child’s unique needs.
