Hello - I am excited for you! I am a speech therapist in the US (moving to the UK in a few months) and you will see an amazing difference in hopefully a short period of time. Good luck!

good luck! we still have someone come in for a few hours on a Saturday to do ABA (very mini programme ) and ds1 enjoys it. I'm amazed at the stuff she's got him doing- it's spilling over into real life now as well- the beginnings of independent play are starting (will play with trains on a track for example- hasn't done that in years).

Good luck for today, Socci.

That's brilliant news. I don't have any experience of ABA but I bet it will take a lot of the pressure off if dh is able to help out.

Great news Socci. Glad it all went well.

That's great Socci, hopefully it's going to be brilliant for your dd and just what she needs. Sounds very good that she paid attention so well.

Socci, I'm so pleased. I remember being amazed that dd would actually attend to something. Just call if you want to talk anything through or just fancy a chat, JakBXXXXXXX

You're doing better than I did Socci, took me at least a year before I had a clue! Must say, going to team meetings made so much difference to my own understanding. Now I'm Mrs Cynical as I'm more experienced than most of the ABA tutors I know!

Glad it went so well.

Yeah, Socci, you sound like a natural! I keep getting told off for giving dd 'too much reinforcement' too often and not saving them for her best responses (I do a great Dancing Dora Doll impression that she loves). Well, I am her mum

Well there is plenty of evidence that it works and LEAs DO fund it so that's rubbish! No-one claims it is a cure, it is an effective way of teaching your child and is supposed to deliver "best outcome". The trouble is, choosing ABA is just the start, the constant justifying is soooo wearing.

Over the years I've perfected my line and how I describe ABA, I've had a lot of practice! I reckon I could sell it to Ruan Kaufman now if I had the chance!
