    In this discussion area, please feel free to share your experience in implementing A.B.A. programs in the school system. We would particularly like to hear from those parents who converted their school teams to A.B.A. We’d like to hear the nightmares as well as the success stories.

    Any insight that can be shared by school-based special education assistants to help parents would also be very meaningful.

    Hi everyone, the latest edition of the Association for Science in Autism Treatment publication is here!

    This free publication is a must-read for parents, friends and family of all who are navigating treatment options for a child.

    When it comes to selecting ASD treatments for your family member, knowledge is power.

    This publication will give you information about the research behind many of the common treatments for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

    Some treatments are backed by strong scientific evidence, but others have little or no research support. ASAT's goal is to provide you with a resource to assist you when making treatment decisions or when confronted with new treatment options.

    This publication is free and available on line at: http://www.asatonline.org/siat-spring-2016-issue/

    Hello we are moving to Victoria area June 2017 with our 15yo son with mild autism. Currently he is in a public high school in an ESE class(varying exceptionalities) and we are looking for a great high school program for 11th and 12th grade. Any recommendations for or against will be greatly appreciated. We will not have the opportunity to visit beforehand, very difficult to make choices based on information from schools, parents are a way better barometer! Thanks so much!
