ABA to become a recognised therapy in Northern Ireland

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

ABA therapy has been a recognised form of therapy for Autism throughout the US, England and the Republic of Ireland. PEAT an organisation in Northern Ireland provides ABA therapy for children on the autism spectrum. Unfortunately they no longer receive funding for this. I am putting this petition in for the ministers of Northern Ireland to recognise ABA therapy in its own right and help to provide funding for PEAT and ABA therapy. ABA should be an OPTIONAL form of therapy for parents to choose from.

My daughter was non-verbal, would not eat foods apart from chicken nuggets and chips, was not toilet trained or had any social skills. She now has a very wide vocabulary, attends mainstream school with a full-time CA and her academic levels are the same level as her peers. She has made friends, although still struggles with social skills but with the help and support of her therapist and school we are achieving these goals. My daughter is a very happy and loving little girl, autism does not define who she is and I am very confident with the continued support from PEAT and ABA therapy, she will become an active member of society and live a very happy life!
