Has anyone heard of pivotal response treatment? If so have you done it? Did you feel it works better than ABA? I'm trying to determine the best treatment for my 3.5 yr old son who has HFA and hyperlexia. Thanks
We (my 23 year old HFA hyperlexiic and I). Have made it so far. Whatever you do, communication is the key. Use his Hyperlexia. If he can comm with you thru writing, you have a channel. Therapists… read more
My son is 2.5yrs with ASD, and has been getting abt 10-15hrs of ABA for 6months. He has made incredible improvements- uses words when prompted and more interested in others. My question is for those with experience with PRT. I heard from another mother that PRT was more effective for her son. Anyone else with personal experience of this?
It was only used a little as a part of a program for our son. The therapist used motivating activities such as teaching imitation through toys that he liked, so that learning would be naturally… read more
We just got our insurance approved for 20 hrs/ week of ABA at home or in an unrestrictive environment. Also he is taking about 10 hours/week of ABA at school.

I am in need of advice, my daughter has been in ABA theraphy for the past year. She is very bored and does not want to play with the therapist toys and keeps signing all done. She even lost interest in her own toys and activities that she use to enjoy. I don't understand what's happening.

Has anyone's child done this similar behavior and did anything… read more
I ran into the same problem and this is how I remedied it.
Are the different therapists consistently being updated on each others' progress?
I keep an excel spreadsheet logging all of my son's goals… read more
Any one been there and done that? I am signed up for training on the 17th of this month. I would love to hear any good or bad experiences from the clinics and/or trainings they have available.
I heard someone say once, "Be more interesting than his distractions." That is not always easy, as a parent.
I have seen a lot of success with my sons ABA therapy only been doing this 7 months maybe helped a great deal teaching him to keep clothes on, follow simple directions, sit down, come here, making… read more
Are people more knowledgeable about autism or special needs or disabled nowadays- near you?
They have services for people here in OKLA., but do they really know much?
