Introductory Workshops

These workshops are designed to help caregivers understand Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) strategies used to teach new skills and reduce challenging behaviours.

1. Understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

This webinar provides families with an introduction to the common characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and how it can impact everyday life. We will discuss research on the cause of ASD and take a closer look at brain development.   Families will also begin to look at the strengths and needs of their own children.

2. ABA Made Easy 

Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is the scientific methodology used to support each child's skill development within the OAP.  This workshop will introduce families to ABA and demonstrate how you can use these strategies to teach skills during daily family routines.  

3. Challenging Behaviours: Prevention and Redirection Strategies

Learn about the various functions of behaviour and why a child might engage in challenging behaviour.  Participants will understand how to use Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) to prevent and redirect difficult behaviours.

Skill Development Workshops

These workshops focus on applying ABA strategies to target a specific skill area and are designed to support families in helping their children to learn and use new skills in their everyday lives.
