Voice of OC

Just a month into a special therapy program, Daniel, a 4-year-old with autism, was playing at his Huntington Beach home when he shocked his mother by asking two older cousins, “What’s your favorite dinosaur?” “I almost fell out of my chair,” said Rachel Harris, Daniel’s mother. “It was the first time he had ever initiated such a question and waited for answers.” Harris attributes her son’s dramatic progress to ABA (applied behavior analysis) therapy, which he started in January through the Healthy Families program, a state-subsidized private insurance plan for children.
