Practical resource materials and educational strategies for children with autism.
If you have logged onto this site, it is most likely as a result of your experience with, or interest in educating children with autism using principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
My son began a home-based ABA program soon after an official diagnosis was given at the age of 4 ½ years. Although the estimated costs of implementing the home-based ABA program was high (approximately $54 000/year), I refused to allow this to be a barrier to providing a proven effective treatment for my son. However, cost saving strategies would be implemented where possible.
Having the experience of creating and searching for ABA resource materials for his program, and recognizing that materials, if available, were costly and limited, it became obvious that a specific site was needed to provide parents the opportunity to obtain ABA resource materials at an affordable cost, and where possible, at no charge to the parents.
