(ABA) Autistic Conversion Therapy

I’ll say it again… Fuck ABA.

Let’s call it out for what it really is:
AUTISTIC CONVERSION THERAPY

ABA Autistic Conversion Therapy - Amy Sequenzia

“I propose that every time we write or talk about ABA, that we also write or say: Autistic Conversion Therapy.

Gay Conversion Therapy has a bad reputation now, even if it still happens.

Both “treatments” (tortures) have the same root.
I want the supporters of ABA to own their objective.

ABA: Autistic Conversion Therapy that uses torturous methods”

~ Amy Sequenzia
