If you have a child with autism, you’ve almost certainly heard of ABA.  If you’re new to the world of autism, you might not be familiar with the term, but you’re certainly familiar with the practice.  ABA stands for...
I empathize with new autism parents as I know how frightening, confusing, and frustrating it can be to be entering a world that you do not understand and never expected to be in. When starting out on this journey, you...
