It seems everywhere you look, there is a screen! Parents and families often wonder, “Why is screen-time bad for my child?” or “Why should I limit my child’s screen time?” Parents and families may wonder, “Why can’t I let me child watch a lot of tv?” or “How can I reduce my child’s television time?” These are great questions!
The recommendations about screen-time being limited come from the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as a few other sources. Screen time for school and online classes are typically interactive and therefore do not need to be limited. However, screen time such as online games, television, watching videos online, and other free play on a screen can have negative effects on children.
Some children may need step by step guidance or individualized plans for behavior challenges as a part of an ABA program. Our team of experienced ABA therapists is able to create an individualized plan for teaching this important skill as a part of the ABA program goals. Acuity Behavior Solutions staff can also review additional ways you can help to ensure your child makes improvements through ABA therapy.
