About the Presentation
In B.C., once parents receive a diagnosis of autism for their child, they are expected to set up a treatment program grounded on Applied Behavior Analysis. But what exactly is ABA and why is it so crucial in autism treatment? This presentation explains the differences and overlap between commonly used terms that frequently confuse parents including: discrete trial, Lovaas therapy, Verbal Behavior, Pivotal Response Training and Positive Behavior Support. Dr. Jacobsen, a registered psychologist and board certified behavior analyst will provide this important orientation both for parents and for the community professionals supporting them. This workshop is illustrated by wonderful video of children engaged in ABA and demonstrates the positive role that ABA can play in the treatment of children with ASD.
The Online Video is in four parts with a total running time of approximately 4 hours and 18 minutes.
