Meet Our Team Of Autism Psychiatrists

Overview

Since autism requires long-term treatment, some parents may find online counselling to be an effective treatment modality as it can easily fit into their busy schedules and save travel time. Furthermore, the online mode can also be comfortable for the autistic individual as sessions could be conducted in their comfort zone – their home. In online counselling, professionals can use various approaches in helping an autistic individual in improving in various dimensions that they struggle with such as lack of understanding regarding social interaction, social communication, as well as a lack of imagination – associated with repetitive behaviour and rigid thinking. There are various approaches therapists use such as – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This therapy aims to change the meaning assigned to events that it understands as the cause of an individual’s anxiety rather than the event itself. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). This approach uses encouragement, repetition, and reinforcement to help individuals learn new skills. Verbal Behaviour Therapy (VBT). It is a type of speech therapy which helps individuals with autism to learn words in context.
