Unsafe Therapies - Non Affirming Practices/ABA

Updated: Jun 28, 2022

The Autistic Realm Australia does not support ABA in any of its forms.
We reject all non-affirming approaches, and approaches designed to enforce typical social and behavioural norms.

Use this list to be informed about practices to be wary of.

  • "new" ABA

  • ABA + relationship-based therapy

  • Discrete Trial Training (DTT)

  • Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EBEI)

  • Early Start Denver Model (ESDM)

  • Incidental Teaching

  • Intensive Behavioral Intervention (IBI)

  • Natural Learning Paradigm (NLP)

  • Play-based ABA

  • Pivot Response Treatment (PRT)

  • Positive behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS)

  • Positive Behavior Support (PBS)

  • Relationship Development Intervention (RDI)

  • Social Skills Training (SST)

  • The Lovaas Method

  • The PEERS Program

  • Verbal Behavior (VB)


  • Whole Body Listening

All Behavior is information.
There is always a cause.
It serves a purpose.
It describes an unmet need.
Solutions can only occur when the cause is understood.
