About Us


ABA Parents 

We are an association of parents who have children with autism, and have chosen to use ABA therapy.  The group first met in 2001 and was made up of the first families in Switzerland who had set up ABA programs for their children.  From 2005 to 2015 the group had the formal structure of a Swiss association. Since 2016 we are organized as a selfhelp group under the auspices of autismus deutsche schweiz.  We have the following goals:

  • To provide a basis for dialog and support for parents using ABA therapy for their children.
  • To promote the wider acceptance and usefulness of ABA therapy in Switzerland with the focus to achieve full payment for ABA by the social insurance system and cantonal authorities.
  • To promote the contact and exchange concerning ABA among parents and professionals for the benefit of our children.
  • To provide contacts and networking possibilities for parents interested in using ABA for their children.
