ABA and its derivatives are extremely damaging to Autistic people. Research, as well as anecdotal evidence shows that ABA causes increased levels of PTSD and suicidal ideation in its victims. It also shows that it is ineffective and unhelpful to Autistic people.

Despite this mounting evidence and a general move away from ABA by many Neurodiversity-affirming professionals, ABA is still used in preschools, schools, clinics and other settings against Autistic people young and old. Our event not only highlights the dangers of using ABA but also provides you with Neuro-affirming and actually helpful advice from Autistic advocates and professionals from around the world. 

Read one of Evaleen’s most popular blog posts titled Alternatives to ABA (Applied Behavioural Analysis).

“ABA stole my childhood. The resulting c-PTSD stole my adulthood. Autistic youth deserve better than what I got. 
And that starts with accepting your Autistic child”
