Meeting Point: Latest From Lovaas

From the Editor

We're delighted at the feedback we've received so far concerning our efforts to provide a newsletter that serves as a meeting point for families and teachers who wish to dialogue with us about practical ideas based on the Lovaas Model of Applied Behavior Analysis. Below are some of the comments we received for our inaugural edition. We will continue to publish some of the letters in future issues of our newsletter. Letters will remain anonymous unless you tell us how you want to be identified (part or all of: first name, last name, city, state).

After viewing the February newsletter, one parent wrote me that she liked the emphasis on "meat and bones" information instead of theoretical terms and techniques. Keeping with the analogy, I hope the March newsletter also proves to be information you can sink your teeth into. I'd love to hear any feedback you have. What do you find most helpful? What would you like more information on? Where would you like us to go?

Keep the feedback coming! As I learned well in one of the first college organizations I joined, "None of us is as smart and capable as all of us." I look forward to continuing our discussion next month.

Sincerely,

Vincent J. LaMarca
Editor, Lovaas Institute Newsletter

I LOVE your new newsletter and believe that it will be a useful resource for parents and professionals! I was trained as an ABA therapist by Scott Wright in the early 1990's and have been a fan of Lovaas for years. I started an ABA school in Wheeling, WV, and we only use Lovaas Institute consultants to program for all of our students and to train all of our staff and parents. I can't wait to forward them the information about your newsletter. It promises to be a great resource for all of us. Thanks!

I just opened my email before bed and I was curious about the new newsletter. I read a few of the articles and then I kept on reading.... I loved the content, stories about kids, ideas for parents etc. I think the newsletter is a great idea.

Please send more information on school topics, as our child's aide has been faded and he has the teacher wrapped around his little non-compliant finger.

Thanks,
