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.
IEPs… Why They Still Matter!
Thursday & Friday, December 3 & 4, 2020 -
Web Streaming Only
This two-day workshop will focus on how IEP’s can be used most effectively to support students with autism and related developmental disabilities.
Toilet Training For Everyone – Revised And Expanded
Thursday & Friday, February 4 & 5, 2021 -
Web Streaming Only
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.
ACT’s Fall Season of Free Events has been made possible by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Support Fund in collaboration with the Vancouver Foundation; the Provincial Outreach Program for Autism and Related Disorders [POPARD], as well as our generous individual donors – as little as $10 a month is a great help. Support ACT’s work.
