ABA Treatment for Autistic Children

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Some of you may not know, but my oldest son Daniel is Autistic. He has Aspergers. Today in Oregon a federal judge ruled that insurance companies cannot deny coverage for children to receive ABA(Applied Behavioral Anaylisis) treatment. This is a big step in Autism community.

I was very happy when I read this. ABA treatments really helped my son. His program was through our school district. Daniel is now entering his freshman year in high school, and has excelled in many things in his life.

    That is my daughter's profession. She is an ABA therapist, working on her Masters right now. She loves her work (and all her kiddos).
