Why is Navigating the Changes in the Field: 10 Trends Transforming ABA important?

ABA is abuse!

I’d just started Accessible ABA when I decided to offer help on a Reddit thread. The topic was neutral, and I thought I had a useful perspective. But the response I got shocked me: “If you’re in ABA, you’re an abuser. You shouldn’t give advice, you should leave the field.” That single message almost made me shut everything down.

Since then I’ve talked to many autistics who sincerely consider ABA to be abuse. These discussions have led me to make changes in my own practice, but changes are needed on a bigger scale, throughout the field, to align with what we know and understand now.

The traditional methods that some of us learned are being rightfully challenged with calls for more empathy, respect for neurodiversity, and prioritizing the individual needs of our clients. The field of ABA is undergoing a transformation to meet these new demands. This evolution brings new possibilities for better, more effective, and more compassionate support for clients. However, this change is also being met with resistance. 

By embracing the needed changes, we can proactively move the field of ABA in a positive direction.
