Thank you for registering for the web streamed ‘edition’ of Two Social Thinking Days for Young Children. This page contains essential information to allow you to fully enjoy this web streamed version of the event. Please see the end of this page for the event schedule.
What is Webstreaming?
ACT’s web streaming is LIVE online video broadcasts, in real time, of autism training events. We work with professional video production companies to bring you conferences and events from British Columbia to watch and participate from anywhere in the world. Our system is designed to be simple to use, with a built-in chat function that allows you to ask questions and get feedback from presenters on the issues you care about. No special equipment or software is necessary, all you need to watch is a computer, laptop, or tablet. More information on ACT’s web stream and upcoming events can be found on the ACT Live Event Web Streaming page.

How to Participate: Live online streaming video includes a live chat function facilitated by ACT staff. You will be able to post questions that will be passed to the speaker at an appropriate time.

Technical Set up Suggestions
The online streaming technology that we are using is the same platform as YouTube. If you can watch YouTube videos, you can watch our live online streaming!
- Be sure your speakers or headphones are on, and the volume at an appropriate level.
- Before the presentation and during breaks, the image and audio will be obscured. Check the schedule below to know when to attend.
- If you have a large number of ‘tabs’ open in your browser, this will use your computer’s memory and slow the connection.
- Check that your browser is up to date.
- If video is stuttering or jumpy, change the resolution by clicking on the ‘gear’ icon.
- To go full screen, click on the ‘box’ icon in the lower right of the image.
