Hi, my name is Ami and I want to be an ABA Therapist when I am older. I did some research to see if it will work for me or maybe I should should check out something different. Here's some different things I found.
First I found what the duties and responsibilities were. You will work with autistic/social and mentally challenged kids and adults. You will help rehabilitate them.
You will help motivate them with positive feedback with good behaviors and will ignore the bad behavior. This tactic help them know what to do and what not to do.
I found that to become an ABA Therapist you have to have an associates or bachelors degree in psychology, behavior analysis or something related to that field.
I want to become an ABA Therapist because they work with kids and adults and I want to work with both, but more importantly they work with kids with autism or mental disabilities.
My cousin who is 7 years old was born with autism. He still doesn't talk fluently but he can say a few words if you ask him to. I love to help teach him new words and I just love being with him in general.
