We are going to do behavioral therapy once a week for 5 weeks 3 hours each session with my son who dx with high functioning autism. Can anyone tell me what to expect and if you think it would be a good idea to include my 8 yr old aspie daughter. Any input anyone has would be great. Thanks

We start on March 4th. I'm really excited because it will be in a school setting specifically for kids with autism.

I'm not sure exactly what to expect, but everything I've heard are all great things!

Well, they did give me a problematic behavior inventory form to complete and they asked me what goals I'd like him to accomplish and requests he will and will not comply with.

My son is attending ABA therapy full-time. I'm not sure if it's the same thing or not.....sorry! I'm sure that they will be helpful though. The BcABA and ABA who work with my ds gave him an evaluation to determine what he needs to work on, along with all the forms I filled-out and he has been attending full-time for 2 weeks and was attending after-school for 2 weeks prior to that so he felt comfortable with him before he was evaluated. Their big focus is helping my ds learn how to tie his shoes and handle his extreme issue with imperfectionism (hahaha, sometimes I think I could benefit from some ABA therapy too!).

We do ABA 5 days a week for 2 hours each day. The tutor works on different things. Right now he is working on This then That and Wait. He also is being helped on his meltdowns with transitioning between things. they are working on sorting cutting and coloring. We are in the process of adding potty training. The tutor helps to teach me skills to handle meltdowns. There really is so much more that they do I could be writing all day. My ds has come a long way since starting ABA. He has more speech, can request things, uses pretend play, counts and recognizes his number 1-10 he knows the ABCs and can recognized some letters. He will be 3 in April. Good luck with the ABA momma
