FREE webinar via Zoom
Thursday, 8 August, 12.30 pm – 1.30 pm AEST
Choosing the right support for your autistic child can be an overwhelming experience. There are various therapeutic approaches, and many families find it challenging to source clear information on which path to take. One well-known and evidence-based intervention approach is Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). This approach has been used to help children learn for many decades. However, there is some controversy and debate about the approach.
This talk will help you better understand ABA – its strengths, nuances, misconceptions and limitations so you can make informed decisions. The talk will cover:
- What is ABA, and why do families choose this type of support for their child?
- What are the strengths and limitations of ABA?
- The range of ABA approaches.
- What are some of the criticisms and misconceptions?
- If you are considering this type of intervention for your child, what should you look for in a quality ABA provider?
Who is this talk suitable for?
This talk is suited to parents and carers of children aged 2-6 years currently engaged in intervention/therapy.
Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and information to help you make informed decisions for your child.
