Hi All - My son is 5 years old and has PDD-NOS. He just started in home ABA Therapy 2 weeks ago. So far he is actually enjoying it. I am curious to hear from people who may have any words of wisdom or words of caution. At this point his therapists are trying to start off a little easy on him to build repore and to get to know where a good starting point is. So far he has blown through all the programs that they have done with him. Is there a point to this therapy if he isn't being challenged? I know it's only been 2 weeks, but I just don't know how this is supposed to go??? Another Question - He dose a lot of "zoning out", flapping, and vocal stims (especially when he's tired). Are they supposed to address this during his therapy? Am I supposed to stop him from doing these things when we aren't at home? I don't think he can help it. How do you teach these kids when the right time and place is? At this point the therapists haven't addressed it at all that I'm aware of. To be fair I will admit I have not talked to the Senior Therapist about my concerns yet. I was hoping to get some feedback from you all first! I love my boy and I want to do whats best for him but I wish I knew what that was!
