ABA therapy for autistic children has existed in Russia for 10 years. We have collected everything there is to know about this truly unique scientific approach, combining 29 different methods and techniques

On December 31, 2019, the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Certification Commission announced that it will retain jurisdiction only in the United States and Canada from 2023. This coincided with an important milestone in the history of the development of PAP in Russia: in 2020 it has already been 10 years since the Center for Autism Problems brought the first experts in applied behavioral analysis to our country, together with the Moscow Institute of Psychoanalysis, organized the training of Russian specialists, began to actively to apply PAP in an inclusive model of teaching children with autism, including non-verbal ones, who were previously considered unteachable.

Our questions about the fate of PAP in Russia are answered by the President of the Center for Problems of Autism Ekaterina Men, Ekaterina Zhestkova, the first in Russia certified behavioral analyst according to the international standard, board member of the Russian Association of Specialists in Applied Behavior Analysis and Nikolay Alipov, MD Sci., scientific editor of the first fundamental textbook "Applied Behavior Analysis" in Russian.

We have a method from which we can dance like a stove

- Katya, it would seem, for 10 years it became obvious that PAP opens up unique opportunities for socialization and development for children with neurodevelopmental disorders. At the same time, you still have to hear a lot of reproaches about this. One is that PAP with a child is a business and the main beneficiary is the provider of the service. What would you say to those who say this?

- Many vital drugs are not produced or purchased in Russia, and when charitable organizations collect huge sums to buy medicine abroad and give a sick child a chance to survive, you can also hear that this is wrong ... “You will save two or three, but what about the rest? We need to strive for the state to take care of everyone ”.

Until we get the state to assume the appropriate obligations, many of our citizens will die, and the fact that they will die “for free” can hardly comfort us. If NGOs cannot save everyone at once, this is no reason not to save someone.

The Center for Autism Problems, being an apologist and provider of the PAP method, does not provide direct services to clients, does not sell services. We build various models and technologies in correction, medicine and education, relying on the PAP method. Under these models, all children in our care receive behavioral therapy and education free of charge.

In this sense, we, as NPOs, are free from the position of beneficiaries and are fairly independent in evaluating those services that are provided on a commercial basis. But we are very supportive of the development of these services in the form of well-trained ABA centers. If, due to the high cost of PAP, we cannot provide this service for all children with developmental disabilities, this is not a reason to refuse to help a certain number of children.

- But the government really should provide effective therapy to a patient in need, shouldn't it?
