2008 Autism Blog Comment Of The Year

Over the past 30 years, several thousand published research studies have documented the effectiveness of ABA across a wide range of:
  • populations (children and adults with mental illness, developmental disabilities and learning disorders)
  • interventionists (parents, teachers and staff)
  • settings (schools, homes, institutions, group homes, hospitals and
    business offices), and
  • behaviors (language; social, academic, leisure and functional life skills,
    self-injury, and stereotyped behaviors)
- CARD blogsite, What is ABA?, December 15, 2008

Facing Autism in New Brunswick's 2008 Autism Blog Comment of the Year award goes to the Center for Autism & Related Disorders Inc. blog site for its comment "What is ABA?" The CARD comment comes from professionals, and an organization, that actually works with and helps autistic children from all points on the autism spectrum. It should help dispel the misinformation perpetuated about ABA and bring to the attention of parents of newly diagnosed autistic children one of the most well researched, effective, means of for helping their children.
