Then you did you ask if anyone here didn't hate it?

I'm glad it works for you


How many people who have actually had ABA hate it? The point of this thread was to establish a theory of mine that many people on here who hate ABA have never actually had it.


It is important to say that not all things that call themselves ABA are in fact ABA. A lot of places call themselves ABA to get covered by insurance. And when someone had a good experience going through it, that is most commonly the case.

No they really are doing ABA therapy. Probably they treat adults different than kids.

I think like League Girl said, it depends on the therapist. But I hope that therapists are now learning that there are reasons why we do everything that we do and that simply trying to change behaviors without understand why we do what we do is not a good thing.
