  • What do you find the most challenging in your work as an ABA Therapist?  The most challenging thing I’ve faced in my time as an ABA therapist is learning that it isn’t my fault that a client isn’t meeting some of the goals. By that I mean you work and try all that you know and ask questions and suggestions but remember never take it personal. They each learn differently.
