Autism Services – What is ABA?
January 31, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
As part of foundational family services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a family support coordinator after attending a workshop, to help you apply the workshop content to your specific family situation.
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based therapy used to support individuals with an autism spectrum disorder to learn new skills and/or reduce challenging behaviour. Often parents/caregivers who have a child with ASD come across ABA services when looking for support. This workshop will introduce parents/caregivers to what ABA is and how it is used to support the learning and development of children and youth with ASD.
As a result of participating in this workshop, you will be able to:
• Describe the basic principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)
• Understand how ABA programming is tailored and individualized
• Identify common strategies used in ABA programming
