Patron comment on

. A good book for families who are wanting to explore whether an ABA programme is the right thing for them. It doesn't have any theory in it though and is a pretty biased account of the ABA practice, but still useful. It seems honest enough, and is a "personal account" type of book. Nic McKenzie
