As a parent who did ABA for three years

There is a more nuanced conversation about ABA that needs to happen. This is presented as a therapy like a medical therapy like speech or PT or OT. The majority of therapy is done by people that might have a high school degree. Is not regulated like most therapy. And lot more points I’m not going to get into, not mob talking points but facts about the inherent flaws of behavioralism overall. A lot of stuff you guys talked about I do agree with but all ABA is not equal .I agreed the no shame in grieving the life you thought you would have ,it is self care and something you need to do to get past it and be ready for the new journey for your kids. I’m happy for anyone who this works for and hope you are not feeling attacked by this comment. But there is a big problem with how ABA is presented to parents and pushed on them. .
