At times, parents choose to send their children to an ABA clinical program. Fortunately, Indiana has many options statewide from which parents can choose. Other parents choose to educate their child via the public school program. Still other families will choose a combination of programming. Having options and choices for family members who only want the best for their child is important. At times, family members may not understand what choice is best for their child, or what the differences are between a school program and clinical/medical ABA therapy program. This article hopes to clarify these differences so parents can make informed choices.
