my 17 month old recently qualified for ei under a global depelopmental delay and they started him on 4 hours of in-home aba therapy a week. Everything I read says that this is a program for children with autism, even on the company website.
I am confused about why they recommended this therapy for him, they said they also use it for lo's with a global delay. My lo is on track with motor and starting to repeat words that we say. I am just questioning if this is the best fit for him.
He points and babbles, but does not wave or consistently respond to his name. He generally likes to play with a toy for a bit and then take 2 toys with him (one in each hand) and walk off with them.
