I am a mum of six. My three youngest all have ASD and have terrible trouble with meltdowns after school. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence of the ‘delay effect’ for children on the spectrum. That being that they hold themselves together and show no behaviour of concern at school but ‘meltdown’ when they return home. My question: is there any research evidence that this exists and what can be done to help?
Hi, I am running a home based 1:1 program for my 29 year old autistic son. I am especially interested to know if anyone anywhere has attempted to develop or modify ABA for use past early childhood, and if so, has such a program has been evaluated?
