ACT’s Free Fall-Spring Events Season – available live and online across Canada & around the world

Registration is open for ACT’s free Fall/Spring series of web streamed presentations by speakers who will inspire and inform. This initiative is in response to the concerns of families and individuals across the world, affected by autism and other special needs, who have been isolated by the pandemic. ACT is responding to their requests for practical resources that are accessible from their homes. These free events are open to anyone who is interested, internationally, but the focus is on supporting caregivers.

Toilet Training For Everyone – Revised And Expanded

Thursday & Friday, February 4 & 5, 2021 - Web Streaming Only

Pat Mirenda, PhD, BCBA-D - University of British Columbia, &
Katie Rinald, BCBA - Co-Director of Blackbird Special Education

It is common for families to experience a lack of success in toilet training a child with autism. As this is a severe barrier to successful inclusion in school and community settings, many families have found Dr. Mirenda and Katie Rinald’s toilet training approaches a huge boost to improving the quality of life of their child and family.
