My 2y 9m old son has PDD NOS and is pretty high functioning. We had an EI team meeting yesterday to discuss his FBA outcome. They recommended 5 hours of behavioral therapy. They offered a Floortime model through one of their carriers, but we've been hearing so much about Lovaas. My son's preschool teacher actually reccomended it, her 2 children have autism. The EI case manager seemed to think it wasn't a good fit for our son since he isn't "profoundly autistic". They said it's very intensive therapy that is broken down into small bits. It might be too broken down for what he needs. Huh? Don't they work with all types of children profound or high functioning?
They said that if we wanted Lovaas, it is there for us. But, I feel like they were very against it. Money perhaps? We are
