Online Autism Treatment: Would You Try It?

Suzanne Murray

rethink autism online help for kids with autismRethink Autism is a company that offers information, videos, and teaching tutorials that show parents how to work with their autistic children themselves rather than take them to therapy.

Many autistic children spend hours and hours each week undergoing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a teaching method that can make significant improvements in a child's ability to learn. But that can get very expensive.

Now parents can get ABA training online and learn those teaching methods from videos. Rethink Autism has videotaped and edited hundreds of therapy sessions so that parents can watch them and get the tools they need to train themselves in ABA and engage their children directly. You can customize your child's treatment plan, and get online support from trained professionals.

That can save a lot of money. A monthly subscription to Rethink Autism is $100, which would only get your child about an hour or two with an actual therapist.

You can also learn more about the program and watch a sample lesson video at Rethink Austism.
