Methodical Limitations Additional Research Recommendations • Though the use of ABA research is recommended for the study of the problems of  human development like matters of curriculum for learning disabled children  there are limitations 1. The making decisions about a child’s educational program based on data.  There should be research concerned with how long to run a baseline period,  when to begin teaching technique and when it is time abandon one teaching  technique and replace it with another. 2.
