I am an ABA Therapist (behavior Analyst) and a mother of an Autistic son. I just accepted a job working with a family with a 9 yr. old boy Blind and recently diagnosed w/ Autism. He is non-verbal- self-injurious behaviors etc..
I need to find someone who I can correspond with and get ideas to set up a structured ABA home program. I have lot's of ideas but I have never worked with dual diagnosis. Please help.
