About Aaron and the Kieselstein Autism Program
Aaron is a 25-year-old young man. He is an intermediate learner on the autism spectrum, by which we mean he is verbal, has a few thousand words, but that his conversational, living and socialization skills are still developing and have a way to go.
Aaron lives here in Burlington, Vermont with me, his dad (Steve) and Aaron's stepmom (Susan).
Aaron is one of the first generation of kids on the autism spectrum to learn from an early age with the benefit of applied behavior analysis. Since the age of 5, Aaron has had formal and informal instruction based upon ABA and principles of BF Skinner's "Verbal Behavior" as pioneered by such current leaders in the field as Dr. Vincent Carbone and Dr. Patrick McGreevey. Aaron has received this instruction both through the public schools he attended in Niskayuna, NY and an at-home program, the Kieselstein Autism Program, that was pioneered by my late wife and Aaron's mom, Michele, and that is now in its 19th year.
