We are a growing group of like-minded Speech-Language Pathologists who believe that the emotional well-being of the child supersedes mandating “compliant” behavior. We are autistic allies who assert that all behavior is communication, and that sometimes behavior is the only communication a child may have the ability to produce at that particular moment. We are anti-ABA. We advocate neurodiversity, self-determination, dignity, respect of individual rights, sensory preferences, and the power to say “no”. Above all, we seek to understand the reason behind our clients’ behaviors. While supporting the child’s emotional well-being, we provide them with therapy to expand their communication in meaningful and functional ways, and in the manner which works best and is most natural for the child. ©
