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.
Please feel free to navigate this site and download free resource materials. Peruse the store for unique affordable educational materials that are specifically designed for ABA programs. Many of these products are available in digital format and can be downloaded to be used with your child’s program. Find therapists in your area. Exchange ideas with other parents or service providers.
Visit the Non-ABA Page page for additional resources. Here you will find resources including financial planning, service dogs for individuals with autism, and inspiring stories of adults with autism. If you are not ready to think that far ahead, I found these two poems inspiring: Welcome to Holland and The Special Mother. I pinned these on my wall, and left them pinned for years. When days got bad, they kept me going.
