Raising early intervention and autism awareness through our amazing journey

ABA therapy- cards

Milo has been working so hard in ABA therapy. He has this 5 days a week for two hours each, as well as speech twice a week, and 5 hours of peer inclusion per week. He is going on his 6th month with ABA.  I can’t tell you how much he has improved in a short time.  When he started, we figured that he didn’t know what was going on around him because he could not communicate anything to us on his own.  I remember the first time I saw the therapist work on cards with Milo, My eyes were full of tears.  He really did know a lot through pictures. You will hear the therapist ask him to do random things like “touch your head” in the middle of the card series. It actually has a purpose- one of which is to help him with transition since this can be difficult for children with autism- which is true for Milo.
His language has also exploded in the last few weeks. He seriously has new words daily! This kid is on fire!
