ABA therapist for my son with mild autism


My son was so diagnosed with PDD-NOS last year. He is going to speech therapy 3 times a week but I would like him to also do ABA ( Applied behaviour Analysis) therapy as well. Does any one know of someone who does this? Or someone who can work one to one with him and who is trained and experienced working with children with special needs? He will be 4 in August and is not speaking yet.

Sorry I forgot to mention that  we live in Riyadh and we need the therapist/ teacher to do the sessions in English

Hi .. Am in the same situation as you are .. If u found an Aba therapist in Riyadh .. Plz let me know .. Am in an urgent need .. Thank you

I did find one but she isn't taking any more clients. I also found a place called ABC Diagnostic Centre that does ABA therapy. My friend sends her sone there and is very happy with his progress.

Good Luck

Thank you for your info .. How do u find a private therapists? How long has Ur friend been sending her son becuz I know they are very expensive and give only three sessions per week ..?

I was just lucky as my speech therapist heard about her from one of his new clients and she said she could only accept one more child and lucky for me that was my son. She has an autistic child herself as well as home schooling her daughter so she has a lot on. I tried to get her to take on my friend's son but she just does not have the time. Just post on every single forum you can and ask around as something may come up. As for ABC learning centre, yes they are expensive. I thought they also did 5 days a week but that may have changed. My friend's son does three days as she felt 5 was too much with school and other therapies. They also have a " school" program there but it is VERY expensive. You should contact them to ask for current prices.

Good Luck

Hi there,
I hope you have found a suitable therapist. I am considering an offer in Riyadh soon for a job. however, I tried to do some research I did not find any social groups running for children with autism. My main concern is that my son will loose out socialising and making friends. I have my reservations about moving to Riyadh for this reason, can anyone help with any information in regards to socialising for children with autism. I home school at the moment, however I would like him to experience a good school in Riyadh for children with special needs. Any recommendations are most welcomed.

i want to jump in this conversation as my daughter is also a victim of mild autism, can you guide me how did you coupe up with the speech therapist, as we have language barrier, my daughter only aware of some english language words. it would be great if you can share the fee charges of the therapist.
