ABA: Applied Behavioral Analysis

Behave OR Be Well

In ABA, children are not given the same respect and access to care as with any other form of therapy. Their access to stimming, comfort objects, and other self-regulatory measures is blocked so the therapist can observe the child self-injurious behaviors.

Dear New York Times: ABA is not a therapy

The New York Times dropped all journalistic standards to publish a commercial for Applied Behavior Analysis without critical review of the facts– like that it’s not a therapy, it doesn’t work, and it’s abusive to autistic people.
