55:07 We're new to ABA therapy, we were recommended by our child's psychologist with a newly opened ABA provider, but was told that the staff are not new and they are experienced who decided to build their own ABA. There's no review online yet about them but was told that there're no waiting list and there's staff available within the area for a child. Do you think we should trust and go for it? What do we need to consider regarding choosing a good ABA Provider for our child?
