It turned out to be very enjoyable and I chose to stick with ABA as my choice of career. I have worked in home, clinic, and school settings. At the end of 2017 I moved to Texas to start a new chapter of my life, and was rather happy to find The Child's Path, where I hope to continue to progress as a therapist and eventually further my education and career in ABA.
