Hello,
I recently moved to Plano,TX with my son who diagnosed with High Functioning Autism.
As I am new to this place I am not sure what are the good ABA centers. In addition to ABA we need Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy to be given in the same facility itself.

I live in the Durant area of Oklahoma and am pretty new here. My three year old son still has no speech what so ever and has left me frustrated. Does anyone in the Durant area know of any speech therapy programs that can help my son for free or possibly not too horribly expensive?

I am trying to prepare for a meeting in January when I plan to formally request my foster son's programming NOT be ABLLS driven. I want some research on the (non) effectivecy of pure ABLLS protocol for adolescents with severe ID (but anything will do).
