While it's not referred to as ABA, one of the main characters who is neurodivergent was being sent to a "think inside the box" camp which has a similar premise before running away. It's mentioned throughout season 1 but only talked about in detail in season 1 episode 1. It's mentioned again in season 2 episode 10 by people who went to the camp, though not in detail.

Not exactly sure why people are voting yes. ABA therapy is never explicitly practiced during this film.

It’s not shown in the show but during the second season Elsa wanted Sam to go to someone described multiple times as a “behavioral therapist,” and the attempt is unsuccessful since Sam goes to his peer group instead.

It’s a blink or miss it moment but autism is listed among the “brain disorders” that the drug could…”cure”

No ABA is shown but IIRC there’s an Autism Speaks poster in some episodes and talk of “curing Autism.” This might have been a different hospital show so correct me if I’m wrong.

Not exactly because this is a historical novel, but Silas' tutors were paid to "train" his autistic traits out of him. This was very traumatic for Silas.

Not shown in detail but implied. There’s a neurodivergent character and she talks about her childhood, how she was subjected to testing and “behaviorists” and how her parents hoped “the white coats” would “cure” her of her idiosyncrasies. She isn’t explicitly labeled autistic but is heavily autistic-coded.
