ASO President Commends Portland on ABA Insurance Coverage
A big thanks to Tobi Rates of the Autism Society of Oregon. Tobi points out:
"In addition to physical, speech and occupational therapy, there is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), which has been shown through evidence-based studies to bring about substantial positive changes.
These treatments can often make the difference between a child being able to attend a general education classroom instead of a special education classroom; between an adult living independently or living in a group home; between a talented individual being able to hold down a job and pay taxes or living on disability. The delivery of ABA and other medical treatments at the right time can have a profound impact. "
I'm assuming Tobi knows that ABA stands for Applied Behavior Analysis and not associated behavior assessment as the original article states.
