    ABA therapy is the very cause of the recent hearings on restraint and seclusion and people are fooled into thinking this is the majic bullet.  There is no such thing and experimenation (Behaviorism) is even less of an answer for these children.  Please show me that adults with Autism who say they have been put through the therapy and it works.  Not the parents but the actual patients. No wonder adults with Autism have a high unemployment rate.  If you had ABA by control freaks  - anyone would be scared to go out in public and work...

    Shame on those supporting a therapy that does not work with everyone and more importantly has led to the abuse of children.
