What is ABA? Part 1

In the few weeks of training I’ve been through, I have met some amazing therapists and met the kids whose lives they’ve changed. What is really inspirational, however, are the families that have made the necessary lifestyle changes which help make the most of the therapy and bring about real improvement in their child’s life. These parents take on so much and it is so beautiful to see them adopt the ABA principles themselves so that the child’s environment and interactions can lead them to recovery.
