Is ABA helpful for High Functioning ASD kids?

For those with High-functioning kids, have you found ABA therapy to be helpful? Or not? and why?

My son's teacher and school team were discouraging me from pursuing ABA therapy for my son because he is considered "high-functioning" I was under the impression that ABA can be helpful for all degrees of learning and development.

Hoping to draw some insight from some of you...

mtaheny1 Do you have any resources that suggest ABA causes PTSD? I am not for ABA but am being forced to do the therapy with my child.
