I have always been, and continue to be, very pleased with ABS and how it has assisted me and my family. Before ABS, my daughter was very combative and explosive. Her behavior caused others to be fearful for their safety. She had a negative effect on the learning environment because of her lack of compliance and unpredictable level of violence. Since attending ABS, she has learned that negative behaviors will get her nothing and positive behaviors will open the door to many of the things she wants. She is much more compliant. Her behavior is much more predictable and stable. Her ability to communicate her wants and needs has also increased and improved. Thanks to the introduction of an IPad, her ABS teachers and therapists not only taught her how to use it, but held her to the expectation that she will use it consistently and across environments. My daughter is now a pleasure to be around. She is funny and engaging. I’ve always LOVED her; now, because of ABS, I also LIKE her.
