    My son has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I designed Awareness Cards to hand out to others whether in public or to classmates. They have been invaluable!

    Our son’s Speech and Language Therapy is no longer covered under our Medical Insurance so the money that I make from my sales goes to paying for his Therapy.

    Best wishes to all the families that love someone with Autism!!

    I don’t know what you mean by “gift” but the core is more related to the 2 things I talked about. A little foolish on the “brainwashing” comment as ABA is a teaching technique and we teach all children. Unless you want to take the Afganistan’s girls approach prior to U.S. intervention. Furthermore, the misinformation of behaviorists doesn’t help. Research in behaviorism is more than DTT techniques.

    I can show you 2 nephews with autism who both pointed while young like 18 mo., but one is now in honors classes in 3rd grade and “indistinguishable” thanks to ABA or intervention. The other took thousands of trials in ABA to learn each skill and is very “stimulus overselective.” Pointing is not so important as Joint Attention and Stimulus Overselectivity.

    Pointing is an important indicator, especially at 18 mos. Hand flapping never hurt anyone, nor does self isolation hurt anyone else. BCBA’s tend to pathologize our “behaviors” and simply don’t understand us. They are able to see the “wrapping”, describe the “wrapping, but they can’t open the “gift”. ABA has caused a lot of PTSD in autistic people. ABA isn’t a technique, it’s psychological “brainwashing”.
