Introductory Workshops

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

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 briefly 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 child.

ABA Made Easy!

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

Challenging Behaviours: Prevention and Redirection Strategies

Learn about the various functions of behaviour and why a child might engage in challenging behaviour.  Participants will develop an understanding of how to use Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) to prevent and redirect difficult behaviours.  Completion of ABA Made Easy! is strongly recommended.


Skill Development Workshops

These workshops combine the ABA strategies learned from the Introductory Workshops to help you support your child build skills in a particular area of need.  Browse our upcoming events:
