ABA and health

ABA isn’t just about teaching a child to name animals, or match pictures…it’s about teaching skills which will help the individual to live a socially significant, functional and happy life. This video (and post) form the fantastic ABA4All Facebook page shows something that most people would have said was unachievable – teaching a boy with autism to almost completely independently do his insulin shots. As a Type 1 diabetic myself, I know just how tricky this chain of individual steps are and I’m super proud and pleased with his team and him, for achieving this!
