10 Rhetorics of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)

ABA Controversy Autism Discussion

ABA Rhetoric #1: ABA interventions are the most evidence-based effective autism intervention

Actually evidence for ABA programmes is overwhelmingly poor and considered low/ very low and this was confirmed once again by a May 2018 Cochrane review . A good resource that is updated periodically and includes research that is independent and by national organisations against ABA, such as the Cochrane review, is this article.

You can also follow #ABAResearch on Twitter for up to date and triggering ABA research, where punishments, aversives and stopping of harmful stims is widespread in the field today.

Also, at the time of writing this, Ambitious about Autism, who run two ABA schools and an ABA college around London states on its website that “there is very little research about how ABA is applied in ABA schools” and they don’t know why or when ABA will help or harm.

This poor quality evidence…

Overcome The Things in Life

My Joyous Feature

In our true passionate life, there are many things that we must overcome. Give the impression that there are many challenges ahead. Let us understand the purpose of overcoming the things in daily life.

Through all this, overcoming things can be like we can learn the facts of everything we can do. Let us prepare ourselves to face the most difficult things or something that may enable us to create those authentic things. Which makes it possible for us to accept it in a very different manner.

We don’t need to think too hard, especially to get through these tough times. Telling ourselves that we have to take the time to do things. Making it a lot easier afterwards. It’s like being able to calm our bodies and minds. Also, it’s more like taking a pause for so many things, especially the most difficult things we have to deal with.

Learning to Know the Outside World

My Joyous Feature

There are so many things we can learn about the outer world. It feels like there’s nothing you can learn the same way. We can learn so much from the world ourselves. This can be done in our own way.

We can do what we can learn about the outer world, is make it more like we can do what we love or do in our spare time. At a given time, films and documentaries can be a way to explore something. Also online videos may sound good as well.

OPINION

ESSAY

  • Voice in the Wind Magazine Inc.

INTRODUCTION

Are you learning to care for someone with Autism? Maybe you have Autism and are struggling to adapt to an ever-changing world around you? Maybe you’re wondering why some people with Autism have more trouble with changing routines than others? Well, maybe I can help.
