ABA isn't really an alternative therapy, per se, but it definitely has its critics. That can make it difficult to determine what to do for our child - and feel good about it. Is it right or wrong to subject our child to several hours of therapy per week? Honestly, I wasn't so sure at first.
Now I'm sure.
It's working. Elijah is looking at us more, referencing us for affirmation, sharing his world with us, and overall more aware of his surroundings. It's an amazing thing to have your child look you in the eyes... Amazing.
You'll hold me to it, won't you?
