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

– Creating high quality Individual Education Plans (IEPs)
– Review of BC Ministry of Education IEP standards
– Introduction to the 4 core elements of IEPs
– Instruction and guided practice in developing quality IEP long-term and short-term goals
– Collecting practical and useful data as a necessary component of IEPs
Day 2
– Addressing problem behavior
– Introduction to 6 types of consequences and how they affect problem behaviours
– Introduction to the (4) functions of problem behavior and functional assessment
– Introduction to the Competing Pathways Diagram and the structure of positive behavior support plans
– Practical classroom strategies for everyday use
BCBA and BCaBA CEUs are available for purchase online only through BC-ABA.
