In Reply to: Also, read up on Greenspan, a better approach (from a former ABA zealot) posted by Yvonne on October 16, 2000 at 10:59:50:


: We've been doing an ABA program for 2 years now and, while it has taught my daughter some good skills, if I had to do it all over again (she was 3 when we started) I would DEFINATELY do a Greenspan program instead. Especially if your chid is stubborn, ABA can cause your child to eventually shut shut down and shut you out, since it's very "in your face". I know the Lovaas numbers (48% "recovery") are very compelling, but Greenspan actually had almost 60%, plus it's a lot more "child friendly" approach which gives them social skills that ABA just can't match. Read up on it before you make a decision. They are both one-on-one therapies, both expensive, and both need to be done at least 5 hours per day for good results. Good luck!

Request; Yvonne, or anyone, I have Greenspans website but ti doesn't tell you much, just bio. of Greenspan, and lists his books and audio's and appearances. Do you have a site which describes the Greenspan method? Perhaps the school(s) will be more receptive to this than they are to ABA. TNX, Grandma Peg
