I'm just reading this blog about RDI therapy (link), reading the comments got me thinking, my daughter hasn't started ABA yet, we do Floortime, Speech Therapy and I have a sensory room at home, I pretty much do it all myself with very little services offered around here. We have been on a waiting list for ABA and IBI. The ABA should start in June, the IBI not for another 3-4 years!
Anyways, my question is, does anyone think that ABA was not good for their child? That perhaps it is too rigid, or robotic? I like to let Violet go at her own pace, and she doesn't like to be pressured to perform on cue. What if it's setting her up to lose confidence, or to stop thinking for herself? I just want her to feel happy, confident and open to learn. Has anyone else had similar concerns about ABA?
