I took my 4 year old to aba for the first time today.OMG I was amazed at how many toys are in the room.When they were evaluating my son I noticed his eyes jumping, and he was in total awe , it looked like a circus.Now my son hasADHD AND ALREADY HAS A HARD TIME FOCUSING AS DO MOST AUTISTIC KIDS.I expected it to be kid friendly but not so much we cannot get any kinda work done because he thinks it is play time.I think they should have a play room or place to put up the toys so the kids do not have to stare at them and do a math problem.The surprising thing is that I thought we had to make things less decorative, dimmer lighting for some, and not to have things that are distracting like this in a special needs school or therapy.It isn't playtime all the time and they do not understand why they are supposed to do a puzzle when they want to go play in the Thomas the train tent.I think the toys should be a reward for complying with them used minimumly .I do not know how to make him understand this isn't a game room its a learning room, and he cries bloody mureder when we leave because he still wants to play in the tent or with other toys.Is it just me or all the centers set up like a game room?I am soooo confused
