Hi

Does anybody know of a good ed psych who would recommend ABA?

Thank you

David Urani is not a pro-ABA ed psych (far from it, by reputation) BUT he will recommend it if he truly thinks it is in the best interests of the child (he did for dd1) - the fact it is him recommending holds sway with LA/Tribunal since his reputation is as an anti-ABA person...

Allan Willis often recommends ABA, but professionally no good EP can really be 'pro'. They have to consider the needs of the child.

So even Allan Willis will only recommend it if he believes it is what your child needs.

The thing you need really is an EP who 'understands and is not adversive' to ABA rather than someone who is pro.

And really, you don't want someone who will recommend ABA regardless of whether your particular model is appropriate for your ds do you?

I think you just need someone who is not anti and who has some knowledge and experience of it.
