ACT Events this fall
POPARD's Veena Birring Hayer and Dr. Georgina Robinson will review the most common mental health concerns experienced by children and adolescents with ASD. The focus will be on helping parents identify when to seek support. Practical strategies for the home environment will be provided, along with an overview of how and where to access mental health services through health and community agencies.
Positive Behavior Support Learning Series
Watch ACT's Positive Behavior Support in School, Home and Community series. This learning stream of eleven presentations tackles the serious issue of how to work with children with challenging behaviors.
Mental Health and Autism video series
The Mental Health and Autism Project (MHAP) is a partnership between ACT- Autism Community Training and UBC CPD which aims to create an enhanced awareness of the growing trend of children with ASD having co-morbid mental health challenges. This education aims to support health professionals to better recognize these mental health challenges and provide the appropriate care.
