Obviously one must learn to behave in public. But ABA teaches them behaviors are never acceptable. Kids with ASD rock and hum and do these things to process information, to feel safe, for many reasons. It's how their brain works. Taking that away from them is a abusive horrible thing to do.

There's other ways of teaching kids appropriate bahviour in public.

Like I said there's literally support groups online for adults with ASD who went through ABA.

How about ask the people with ASD if they think it's a good idea or not?

All frum society cares about it that you fit in and learn to be as little autistic as possible.


ANY method can be abusive if the teacher is abusive.

There are typical children who were bullied by their teachers - does not mean that all teaching
is inherently abusive?

You yourself said that it is for the child's benefit to behave appropriately in public. I don't believe
that today ABA therapists tell a child they can never engage in "stimming" behavior - just not
to do it in public.
