My son's ABA program has been a blessing for us. His progresses are remarkable since he started it last year. He does 24 hour/week, 4 hours from Monday to Saturday. He also goes to the school fulltime. Now, you have to make sure you really have a good ABA program & team to do this amount of hours w/out burning off your child. His ABA therapists work on communication, functionality, play time, social behavior, fine & gross motor, etc...

As much ABA and OT as you can possibly get your child in..40 hours is reccomended but unrealistic for most families due to the availability of services, insurance coverage, or finances...we recieve 2 hours weekly thats covered by insurance then I pay cash for another hour of Hippotherapy (which is a speech therapist working with your child on horseback) my son loves the rythm of the horses gait and we ALWAYS see huge improvements when he is enrolled in it...they only offer it in our area during the spring and fall. Bottom Line-AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! the more therapy he recieves the more improvement you will see.

The more services, the better. I think you need more than 2 sessions of 45 minutes of ABA. Generally, they want you to do at least 20 hrs. Do you have insurance for this? Make sure you get a good worker. The child will undergo a stress period at first as they obviously dont' want to do what they don't want to do but the ABA person is there to challenge your child and the child learns this early on. Fine line between a good amount of hours and too much for your child though. Be careful your child gets his time for doing his/her own thing. This can often be incorporated into ABA as "break time". Hope this helps
