For what it's worth! Scroll down till you get to the thread in question.
Many of the strongest critics are people who are on the Spectrum and understand first hand what the Option Program may do to to and for a child with autism. The research I have done in looking for a program for my boy has led me to choose Lovaas as having the most promise. We also do speech and ot, and use a simplified and homegrown play therapy which is more like floortime. We have had good progress (albeit slow) so far after 7 mos. of the ABA.
Good luck to you!
