OK, so why don't the Floortime and Son-Rise and a whole lot of other people call their method ABA?
Also, if you have 18 years of 24/7 experience at being an autistic child, they disqualify you from speaking about what's good for autistic children.
Whose approval matters?
Autism professionals who care NEED AND WANT YOU TO DO THIS.
But when an overwhelming wave of #actuallyautistic people urge for ABA to be banned and recognised as abuse, then they can say, "I'm just saying what autistics say."
That's not the point. We can't just set aside our differences while they justify abuse and call it therapy.
So, focus your advocacy on that. Understand that autists in the USA are being tortured every day using electric shocks.
