In Reply to: Starting an ABA program for our 4 1/2 year old son. Are we starting too late? posted by Don on July 27, 2000 at 13:53:33:

Our daughter started ABA at age 5. She is in a mainstreamed classroom with a one-to-one aid. She has made REMARKABLE progress over the past three years and continues ABA today. She turned eight in May. Your child had every chance of success -- keep with the ABA -- it works!


: We have just begun an ABA program for our 4 1/2 year old son. I read the autism article in Newsweek, they mentioned that 50% of the kids starting a program before age 5 can be main streamed into regular schools, but only 10% are main streamed when starting after age 5. Being that he's 4 1/2, we're hoping we didn't start too late.

: He had been in an integrated pre-school for a year and half, making very little progress, that's why we started the ABA program. I feel we WASTED valuable time while he was in the pre-school program.

: Any comments welcomed.
