A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi, our kid just diagnosed with ASD 3 months ago and he's about to start going to pre-school this year at a school district we understood their way for treatment is discrete trial (DTT), however, our health insurance could cover a reasnoble portion if we go private ABA therapy, since our kid just turned 3 we would get him the best way of those therapy methods, is there any one went through the same situation could help us to make a decision ?we appreciate your opinions.

Teaach Method Vs ABA
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi all
We moved to SW Virginia from the Northeast . In this area of the state, the public school educational system uses TEACCH as the basis of their curriculum with structured teaching to work with"the culture of autism".

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 attempts… read more

Have you figured out your problem? I am both a parent and a teacher to autism. I was against TEACCG until I attended the week long training. And though I think a pure TEACCH approach is lacking… read more

Floor Time Vs ABA For 4 Years Old On Spectrum With Communication And Cognitive Problem
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

I need help on this question:

Which one do you think is better?. Floor time or ABA therapy. My son has been receiving ABA therapy since Jan 2013. I am not happy about the progress. The ABA is happening in the daycare, it is not one-to-one therapy.It is a therapy within the daycare among the kids. I need somebody to tell me about the difference between them.

A MyAutismTeam Member

Floortime was life changing for my daughter but I am not dismissing ABA as each child is different. Sometimes a combination of ABA, Floortime, RDI is a well rounded approach

Has Anyone Here Heard Of Ido Kedar?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had a pretty provocative conversation with one of my son’s therapists recently. She does like to bring up occassionally her reservations about ABA, at least the most traditional ABA practices.

I understand her points, and I can see some limitations and things to watch out for, but I keep getting these gut feelings she is either trying to tell me between the lines that she wants us to consider a different ABA approach (ie work with her company instead, who has a different approach focusing… read more

How Often Will We Need To Schedule ABA (if Doctor Recommends 15 Hours)? What Is The Duration Of A Session?
A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi. My toddler (2.8) was just diagnosed with autism and of course I am so overwhelmed with questions. I was told that he needs ABA 15 hours a week. How many hours do they do a session? I'm worried about copays and how often I will need to pay them. Fortunately for us, we have insurance, but I'm wildly concerned about cost of visits
Also, he still qualifies for Early intervention. Is this the same as ABA? Or different? IF so, how different
He will be attending an integrated school when he… read more

Medicaid is now supposed to be paying for ABA secondary to your insurance, so I would try to get your child on the Medicaid waiver and then the co-pays will get picked up by Medicaid. The Regional… read more
