Ask an Autistic #14 - What are Some Good Therapies for Autistic Children?

Heads up to my sound-sensitive viewers! There are some accidental mic noise from 4:16 to 4:18 that may be bothersome.

Which therapies are good for autistic children? What should the goals of therapy be? What is Floortime? How does Floortime compare to ABA? How much therapy should my child be receiving? Answers to all of these questions and more in this week's episode of Ask an Autistic!

Note: My opinions on Floortime are my own, and while I've read Dr. Greenspan's book, I am not affiliated with them in any way.
