IMO, hindi mo naman kino contradict. we have consulted 4 devpeds at wala ni isa sa kanila na nag recommend ng ABA for my kiddo. sariling research at desisyon ko lang ang ginamit ko nung nagdecide ako na mag ABA.

after kong makapag research, at madetermine ang mga gusto kong behaviors ni kiddo na ma address at ma compare yun sa services na ino offer ng ABA centers, nakahanap ako ng ABA center na makakatulong saken ma meet ang mga targets ko for my kid.

sinunod ko pa rin ang sabi na mag OT at mag speech. dinagdagan ko lang ng ABA. :)

the doctors didn't say no, and they did not tell me to stop either, so i guess it is just a matter of preference ng mga specialista. :)

2x a week kame mag ABA. not sure bakit hindi lahat, but for sure meron ng followers kasi nga may mga practitioners na. yes being robotic was a concern din kasi nga they teach specific question and specific answers. pero they also teach generalization para kahit sinong magtanong sa kahit anong situation basta same thought yung tanong masasagot ng bata ng tama. saka andito naman ako to make sure na napapractice niya ng tama ang mga skills na tinuro without making it look and sound like praktisado. you get what i mean?

i received a notification of a reply in this thread an hour after you posted yours but it is not showing here (di ko alam bakit) and the concern was parang dog daw na binibigyan ng food kapag nagagawa ng tama yung drill and made her uncomfy. strong reinforcer daw kasi ang food according sa mga therapists.di lang food, anything na of interest sa bata they use as a reinforcer or reward kapag nagagawa nila ng tama ang drills. so the good behavior is reinforced at yun ang inuulit nila kasi tumatatak sa isip nila na something good yields something better. naexplain ko ba ng tama? hehe. 

there are no licensed ABA therapists here, i am aware of that. kaya nga i believe part of the reason why they charge cheaper rates is because of that. kaya naman i make sure to ask the centers how often and how intensive their trainings are.

at the end of the day, the choice is yours. what ever therapy or method gives you and your child satisfactory results, dun ka de vah?

I'm with you Losyang! By the way i was the one who posted yun about food as a reinforcer, (for some reasons i also can't see it here now) was just sharing my experience coz like i said it made me uncomfortable...yes you explained  it well. As for my case kasi it was like the first few meetings pa lang and i think the therapist  had not tried other things pa to reinforce yun agad.  Anyways it was clear since then and when i brought it up mas nachallenge ang therapist and now we are working well.  Bottomline is as parents we should really know kung ano at san ang mas makakatulong talaga sa progress ng kids natin...

May i add pala na ABA cannot address all our concerns coz their focus is more on behavior that's why just like losyang's kid  my son is also on OT & Speech...  Stims and sensory issues plus motor skills are addressed sa ot.  My son's condition improved through combination of those therapies 😊

tantrums, grabbing, yung paulit ulit na pagtatanong ng are we there yet? habang nasa sasakyan kayo, yung sobrang tagal na pagsusuot ng damit, yung pag inutusan mo kumuha ng something sa kwarto antagal bumalik at minsan pagbalik di pa dala yung pinakuha mo at marami pang iba.

kung bakit kaya hindi mabigyan ng license ang mga ABA therapists dito, e hindi ko alam ang sagot dyan. i can only assume that it is because there is no known institution that really offers a specific training/course/diploma/certificate for ABA here in the Phils, hence there could be no one to give license to practitioners. the article on this link might also give light.

Hi.. I came to see this topic though it seems old.. just taking chances to get more information. My daughter is diagnosed with ASD. We are residing here in UAE. We're looking at the option of going home sa pinas kasi for her therapy. Been looking for a good center which can provide ABA, speech and OT. I would appreciate if someone can suggest good centers.. Please.. God bless us all

yan din ang hanap ko @meatamom  ;)     yung best. kaya lang ang hirap i-qualify  yung best. dahil sa tingin ko, depende sa teacher, sa sistema ng center, sa kalagayan ng bata, sa mga taong nakapaligid sa bata, sa frequency ng session, sa quality ng session, at sa marami pang ibang factor ang magiging resulta ng therapy. kaya ang ma i sa suggest ko lang ay ang mga sumusunod, kung saan nagte therapy ang anak ko. sana makatulong :)


ABA -> Teamworks         http://teamworks.ph/

Speech -> THINKids           https://foursquare.com/v/thinkids/4e4891c6227128e1e8e7ca33

Thanks for your reply @losyang. You are absolutely right. so many factors need to be considered and one case is different from another.. Been seeing teamworks when i'm searching online.. definitely, I will consider as one of the options.. I have also been seeing shine intervention.. not sure if familiar ka with them..

if you don't mind, how long have your child been with teamworks? is their price reasonable? I was trying to drop them an email, nag bobounce back.. do you have their correct email ad? ginagamit ko yung asa website nila pro my mail can't get through.. thanks again @losyang..

i came across shine nung panahong naghahanap pa lang ako ng center, pero masyadong malayo ang location sa amin e. kaya di na ako nag inquire.

heto ang contact info ng teamworks na nakita ko dun sa monthly programs na sinesend saken.

Telephone: 477-4380               
Email: teamworks_behavioral@yahoo.com   
Website: www.teamworks.ph

28 months na kame dyan sa teamworks. pare parehas naman sila halos ng rate. the higher ones, yung mga di kaya ng bulsa ko, dedma ko na. di ko rin naman afford e. hehe.

Hi! @losyang, maybe I can help, if you like to try ABA therapy I can send you sa pm...malinis, maayos, at cooperative sila. Even the owner she can advice you well. Hope makagaan sa paghahanap...I feel for Moms who experienced so many but still searching, like me doing research and always talking to experts.  :)
