Introduction to 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 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.
