Wanted: Your Questions About Rethink Autism

In case you haven’t seen Rethink Autism, it is a new online program for delivering video-based ABA therapy training, collaborative data tracking — and really good, compassionate, sensible information about autism in general — to families who might not otherwise have access to ABA resources. It is available to anyone with a computer and internet connection, for $100/month (personal account). The program covers academics, social skills, behavior, and motor skills. Here’s my recent writeup from this blog:

Since that post, people have asked me questions about accessibility with regards to costs, languages, offline populations, and general direction. I don’t have the answers myself, but the Rethink Autism team has agreed to answer such queries during a 9/21 Q&A on my blog. If you would like to submit a question, please send it to me by Thursday, 9/10.

I’m not aligned with or compensated by Rethink Autism except intermittent site access for evaluation purposes. I just think it’s a wonderful and much-needed resource for the ABA therapy-using segment of the autism community, and want to help them make it even better.

Not really a question, but it would be nice to see them develop some sort of scholarship program- lord knows none of my autism-mommy friends (or I!) could afford $100 a month. It looks really neat though, and I think it will help a lot of people.

While I can think of a lot of things to do with $100, helping my child tops the list. I have just visited 3 different ABA programs in my hometown, ALL of which would require over $30,000 a year for a 20 hour a week program. Yikes! I would take $100 any day. I think it is a very reasonable and cost-effective option to those of us who feel hopeless to provide what we know is best.
