Ask an Autistic #5 - What is ABA?

What is ABA? What is the purpose of ABA therapy? Is ABA good for Autistic children? Is there a link between ABA and PTSD? What's the alternative? Answers to all of these questions and more in this episode of Ask an Autistic!

Note: At 1:15 I say, "the operant being the Autistic child", but what I meant to say was, "the operant being the Therapist".
