    Question ABA Manual by Kathy Lear

    I've been surfing the net and came to a site called "Help Us Learn" A woman named Kathy Lear has composed an ABA manual to aid in teaching parents, therapists, school teachers or just anyone how to use this behavior modification intervention with children. Don't sell me on ABA. I like the idea. Anybody familiar with this manual? Is it helpful or a waste of $99? Thanks for the input.

    There is a book that is 1/2 of that price called "Behavioral Intervention for young children with Autism" by Catherine Maurice. The book is EXCELLENT in my opinion and details, step-by-step, ABA therapy. It has each goal listed and broken down into smaller tasks. It is a very indepth, detailed book on teaching children with autism (using ABA) and behavior modification (replacing bad behaviors with good). It is actually called a 'workbook' due to the fact that it details each step of ABA and each goal and tells you how to do each. I have the book and think it was well worth $40. You may be able to buy a used one on ****** or maybe find one on Ebay.

    I am not familiar with the other one you asked about though, sorry.

    Take Care!

    Sherri.

    Thanks Sherri. Money certainly does not grow on trees around here. My son is two and will not get diagnosed for about another three months. My husband and I don't want to waste anytime. I appreciate your input.
