Autism - Support Across the Spectrum Autism - Support Across the Spectrum

Does your child go to a preschool autism class that is ABA based?

My son right now is in a non-cat SN preschool, but in march they will transfer him to the aba class.

i personally think his language skills are pretty good, not great. Less than average but he can hang with his NT peers in that respect.

 

But his self-regulation skills are horrible. Sitting and working on something he needs one-on-one, etc. Circle time is so hard for him, etc. So they decided for the PAC class for him. i can't wait until march!

My son began early intervention with ABA, they still use ABA and he is in 6th grade.  I believe wholeheartedly in ABA.

My son is not in an ABA preschool and I am glad for that. I am NOT a fan of ABA at all. I do not like the techniques or strategies they employ with ABA. I found it to be much to agressive and it's definetly not for my son.

 Yeah, some kids actually regress with ABA :(

Thankfully, ds seems to take to it. We'll see when he finally starts and i can observe him in his classroom and see if he digs it.

My son got ABA at home, before starting pre-K.  When he started pre-k his school did not offer it, but his case was bad enought that he receives services at home two days a week. (Thank Goodness)

I don't think so.  It's an Autism-specific class, but I don't know that they use ABA.  His dr. has recommended he get some ABA therapy outside of school.
