1) Workshops
  • Understanding Behaviour 101
In this workshop you will learn how to define behaviour, including examples of appropriate and challenging behaviour. You will learn how to apply the Antecedent-Behaviour-Consequence (A-B-C) Model, looking at the different functions of behaviour and general teaching strategies.
  • Steps Towards Positive Change
Once you understand why your child behaves in certain ways, you may wonder what to do next. In this workshop, you will learn what happens before an undesired behavior occurs, what to do after it occurs and how to set goals to change the behavior. We will share strategies you can use to teach your child replacement behaviours.
  • Introduction to ABA
In this workshop you will learn general facts about Applied Behavioural Analysis. We will include evidence-based strategies that you can use as you teach your child with ASD. These strategies include defining behaviours, reinforcement, task analysis, and prompting.
