Mid Term Project on ABA (better late than never)

This project was SUPER interesting to read through!! As someone who has experience with multiple forms of treatment for mental disability and illness, it was really wonderful to see this sort of approach to this topic. It's so easy to paint things as universally good or bad, but you do a really great job of showcasing lots of opinions and information, while also stressing self-advocacy and autonomy for the treated individual in this process. I really valued the way you modeled that neutrality, and also put it into a simple and accessible format to get the information. The numerous reminders that neurodiversity is valuable and that one's child comes first is so, so important, and I think crucial to a resource like this. Really a very interesting mode of communicating this information, and I think it was really well executed!
