Well, I'm not a teacher, but I've just watched it. It was absolutely fascinating. Definitely worth viewing.

I watched it.

I used to teach in an ABA school, and it left me with very mixed feelings about the methodology. I have seen it work miracles, and I have seen it make things a whole lot worse.

The documentary did not change my feelings.

I missed this but a TA friend with experience in this area said it was very interesting. Can I get it on any kind of catch up does anyone know?
