ABA Therapy

Nolen has been doing ABA therapy for nearly 9 months now.  He has made substantial improvement over the last year, since he was diagnosed with autism.  When he started ABA therapy, he had just started talking again and was starting to follow one step directions.  I took a video back in September so that I could see the changes as he progressed through the therapy. 
September 2013

ABA therapy has been such a true success in his life.  He is learning to cope and can now go out in public places with out having giant melt downs.  Yes, he still has melt downs, but they are few and far between.  He usually just begs to go home when he is over whelmed.  You can see a large margin of improvement from September to now.  He is able to sit in his chair, follow directions and answer questions with full sentences.  Considering he couldn't talk last February, this boy  has come a long way. 
I am so grateful to the wonderful therapist who come every day to help Nolen.  I am also so glad I didn't end up putting him in pre-school this year.  I think he is doing just as good with out the extra stress of showing up at school at the age of 3.  He still has a long way to go, but the last 6 months of therapy have drastically changed his life for the better.
