Have you heard ABA touted as the gold standard for autism treatment? Are you equipped with the facts to challenge the industry’s narrative confidently? Can you articulate to a doctor, school, or agency why ABA might not be the best approach for autism?

Join us on March 21st when Julie Roberts, M.S., CCC-SLP will present an enlightening 2 hour session that challenges conventional views and dives into the multifaceted world of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA). In this two-hour session, we’ll delve into ABA’s controversial history, assess the industry’s ethics both past and present, and share insights from autistic individuals who have experienced ABA.

Course Description

Ethical Inquiry: Examine the ethical implications associated with past and current ABA practices.
Autistic Voices: Hear firsthand accounts from autistic individuals who have experienced ABA.
Fact Over Fiction: Delve deep into understanding whether ABA truly stands as the “gold standard” for autism treatment.
