: I've heard a lot about ABA. My son just turned 3 and was diagnosed with autism. I want to know how I go about getting information and what is the first step in starting ABA. I would appreciate any advice.
I would find agencies in your area that provide this service and talk to parents to get some feel for what makes them different. You may get funding from your school system. My suggestion is to get to a support group meeting in your area to find parents who have already been through your stage and could help you. The providers will know which towns pay and how to handle that. Good luck.
