Two of the most common techniques for teaching children with autism are ABA and TEACCH. While ABA tries to make a child with autism the same as his peers, TEACCH tries to respect the culture of autism. Therapists tend to be loyal to one approach or the other. This study looks to see if children with autism would choose one technique over the other. The authors call on further research to look at choices that people with autism make with regards to intervention, leisure, and other issues that affect quality of life.
