ABA therapy, otherwise known as Behaviour Analysis is often recommended for children who have been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. This is because ABA aims to aid development of social and emotional skills in children on the spectrum. ABA is guided by ideas from learning theory. For example, it pays attention to how learning happens, how the environment impacts behaviour, and how consequences for behaviour can strengthen or weaken it, leading to change.
Interventions help children build their social abilities and achieve improved communication, the ability to complete tasks, and new skills like self-control and self-regulation. It also teaches children to transfer learned behaviours to new settings, and decrease adverse behaviours like self-harm.
Our therapist will use ABA with your child, in a one-to-one format. During ABA therapy sessions your child will learn how to adjust to social situations that they normally may not understand. Our ABA therapists will utilise positive reinforcement, this is a proven technique which demonstrates that when an individual is recognised and rewarded for an action, they are more likely to repeat the behaviour. Thus ABA therapy gradually encourages your child toward desired behaviours.
Conversely, ABA also teaches about the consequences of negative behaviour with the view to discourage these. ABA therapy helps children understand the consequences of positive and negative behaviours. This allows your child to learn what is, and is not socially acceptable. The aim being that your child can transfer this learning to the real world and be better prepared in all kinds of situations, be that at school, or with family.
Before your child begins ABA therapy at Phinity Birmingham, our therapist will wish to learn about what your child struggles with the most, and what you want for your child. This will inform the individualised behaviour goals and treatment plan, which can be adjusted as goals are met or unmet. ABA is an intensive treatment and sessions can be between 10 to 30 per week.
ABA therapy is useful for a number of issues, and is not restricted to children. It can also be helpful with adults who experience autism symptoms, or other behavioural ‘disorders’. For example, it has been known to treat depression, severe anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, anger, and of course autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
We offer ABA therapy in Birmingham. Phinity Therapy also serves other cities and countries through our network of qualified therapists. Online therapy is also available, catering for those who cannot reach our clinic or have busy schedules.

Learning can be a wonderful experience, but it can also involve academic pressure and stress. Healthy stress levels can motivate us to do well, indeed many people do well under a little pressure. However for others, academia can bring about a feeling of overwhelm which can feel unmanageable. This can have consequences for our ability to achieve goals, and for our mental health, leading to anxiety and depression.
Addiction is very common and there are various reasons that people become addicted to things. Addiction can be chemical, for instance alcohol addiction. Or it can be psychological and behavioural, for example shopping-addiction, internet-addiction, or porn-addiction. In fact, people can become addicted to almost anything. But help is available.
It’s normal to feel angry sometimes, and it should be said that anger in and of itself is not a ‘negative’ or ‘bad’ emotion, it has its purpose. If however, it’s impacting your life in a negative way then it may be useful to learn about the help available.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental condition that occurs due to differences in the brain, otherwise known as neurodiversity. Neurodivergent people who are ‘on the spectrum’ will often experience problems with social communication and interaction. Neurotypical people (that is, those who do not have an ASD) may find it difficult to understand the behaviours of those affected by autism.
Life is challenging, so it’s normal to feel low at times. If however, you’re feeling sad, apathetic, and hopeless for a prolonged period, you may be depressed, and this impacts functioning. And although depression is a natural response to difficulties, it can be treated.
