About the Event

This two-day workshop will focus on using Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) methods to support students with autism from Kindergarten to Grade 12; in particular, those who are moderately to severely impacted by their autism.

While many educators are familiar with early behavioral intervention using discrete trial teaching, the science of ABA has much more to offer teachers who are responsible for the education of students with autism and related disorders. This workshop aims to expand your conceptualization of ABA in ways that are practical in the regular classroom.  

 Topics covered will include:

Day 1:

  • The Individual Education Plan (IEP)
  • Collecting practical and useful data.

Day 2:

  • Problem Behavior Management
  • Practical classroom strategies

BCBA and BCaBA CEUs are available for purchase online only through BC-ABA.
CEUs cannot be purchased at the event. See more details on CEUs.
