  • I do not know about them, but I looked it up. It appears they use ABA, which is good for children on the spectrum. I would suggest to see if they would be willing to include Play Therapy or Relationship Development Intervention as well, this may help apply what your child learns in ABA to real life situations. When my son was first diagnosed, I became a TSS worker with children on the spectrum so i could get some free training on how exactly to help my son.
