Maltby Centre is now offering a series of online workshops for parents and caregivers! These workshops are designed to help parents understand concepts related to Applied Behaviour Analysis, access resources and increase overall parent capacity. This online workshop is for parents living in Ontario with a valid OAP registration number.
How does your child communicate when they want something? Do they point at an item or pull you toward the item? Do they scream, cry, or use other challenging behaviour to have their needs met? We can help you encourage your child to start using new methods to communicate, by teaching you some strategies to jumpstart a child’s communication skills. As part of Foundational Family Services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a Family Support Coordinator following this presentation to help you apply the content of this workshop to your specific family situation.
As a result of participating in the workshop, you will be able to:
• Define communication and the effect of autism
• List three possible communication systems for nonverbal children, and the advantages and disadvantages of each
• Practice using specific strategies to teach and expand your child’s early communication
