Can anyone recommend a good essential oil program on a budget?

Our son struggles with impulse control. He becomes overly excited and impulsive when happy. He struggles to engage, share attention and focus, but can focus on his own activity when interested. He is hyper active.

DTT style ABA vs PRT/play based ABA?

DTT style ABA vs PRT/play based ABA?

My son is 4 and he has moderate-severe autism. There are ABA agents that do discreet trial teaching and others that do PRT or other forms of play based ABA. Every company wants to do thorough assessment, write up a report and get insurance approval before starting services so I can't just try out both and see what works the best for my son. Any suggestions deciding on which ABA agent to choose? Thank you very much!

We have been leery about this system and had stuck with ABA and DIR privately funded by us because in our son's prior preschool that has been working well as we went from non verbal limited interactions (graded moderate on the new proposed dsm scale) to verbal with… read more
