Any Good Books For Parents On Therapy Life?

Any Good Books For Parents On Therapy Life?

I find the whole process of getting attached and then burned and the hunt for a new therapist so exhausting. Ive stopped counting but I think we are at over a dozen now. There was a period where someone was quitting every 3-4 months on year bc they were moving, going back to school, changing clinics, etc. Of course I realize this is part of life and all that, I just want to hear from someone who can relate and has put it into words!

ABA does seem like an intensive profession but I also see it takes extra schooling so I assume would be more vocational—like you go thru a ton of training and school to be a nurse
Or doctor, you would find out in school if you werent cut out for it. Is this part of why ABA gets a mixed rap? I am really wondering if there is a book or resource for parents—if not I feel like this would be a good book to make!

Around here there's a pretty big turnover of therapists as there's a lot of ads for ABA therapists and not so many people wanting to take those jobs. They get burned out or take other ABA jobs that pay better. Seems like a secure job because autism isn't going away but therapists have said some kids were tougher to deal with than others.
