Anyone had experience with both DIR/Floortime and ABA?

Anyone had experience with both DIR/Floortime and ABA?

I'm looking for some insight from anyone who's had experience with both DIR/Floortime and with ABA. We might be moving our son to a new school who uses DIR/Floortime but our Regional Center thinks it's not as effective or useful as ABA.

Which state has the best services for adult children with autism?

Which state has the best services for adult children with autism?

My 19 year old son has ASD/BIPOLAR II and we are in IL. There is nothing here to help him. Not even a decent hospital if he needs help. I was looking at possibly florida or Arizona. But I'm afraid to leave the state and lose his medicaid waiver. However the waiver has done nothing but make him wait for 3 yrs. He has no assistance at this time and his behavior and mental health is declining. I'm visually impaired so I really need help ASAP. :(
