Our son has autism... We have him in a couple different programs now, and they are working for now. There are other programs that are coming up that I would like to try, but there is a dalema going on.. My husband want our son to go into ABA therapy. I am not so sure about it, as they say that they need between 25 to 40 hours a week with the child. So, if they do 40 hours a week, where does the child get socialization in and stuff like that.
The school comes in twice a week with a special ed teacher and a speech therapist and they work with him, and he is going to see a skills worker and he is involved with a thing through school called Birth to Five, and after his appointment on Wed, when seeing his skills worker, I take him to a park and so on to be around other kids...
So I am wondering... Has anyone else with autisic children used ABA before, and what are the good and bad things about it?
