While you have been able to have total control over your child’s ABA program at home, it is quite a different matter in the school system, public or private. Most children with autism will receive Educational Assistants (EAs), but there is no guarantee that the EA will be trained in ABA or that the school will allow the consultant to be closely involved in educational programming. For further information on what a quality ABA program can look like in a school setting and how to advocate for this, see our Schools section.
