I was very pleased to find a nice article in Time magazine highlighting the differences between an ABA intensive program and a DIR program for therapy. I enjoyed the article because my previous work was in an intestive ABA program and now I work in DIR model program. I enjoyed the ABA program, but I REALLY enjoy this program. I feel like I am able to focus on the child as a person first, not just a body full of "behaviors."
