The BC-ABA is hosting an in-person and online workshop on Business Considerations for Private Practitioners on November 16th, 2018.  Online registration is now closed. Limited on-site registration is available if capacity allows.

BC-ABA’s 10th Annual Conference will be held on March 3rd, 2018 at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC. Our Pre-Conference Workshop will be held on March 2nd, 2018 with Dr. Tiffany Kodak presenting on skill acquisition of children with autism.

Modern technologies such as applications, hardware, and adaptive devices can help persons with autism learn new skills and provide opportunities for practice, application, and problem-solving. These tools can help learners schedule their day, participate in socialization opportunities with peers close by or across the globe, help and even help them find a voice. We now can know in “real time” what’s been learned or still needs to be taught or use sensors and other devices to know when things might need attention.

This two-day workshop, featuring Richard Stock, PhD, BCBA-D, will focus on using Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) methods to support students with autism from Kindergarten to Grade 12; in particular, those who are moderately to severely impacted by their autism.

While many educators are familiar with early behavioral intervention using discrete trial teaching, the science of ABA has much more to offer teachers who are responsible for the education of students with autism and related disorders. This workshop aims to expand your conceptualization of ABA in ways that are practical in the regular classroom.

Please mark your calendars for the Student Alliance’s next upcoming event. On May 10th, 6pm to 8pm at Capilano University, Katie Allen M.S., BCBA will be presenting on the Functional Analysis of Problem Behaviour.

This event is open for all interested.

Strategies for Using Photographic Activity Schedules and Script Training to Promote Independence, Verbal Behavior, and Social Skills in Individuals with Autism

Ultimately, attendees of this workshop will obtain the skills necessary to be able to implement photographic activity schedules and social scripts with individuals with autism, and they will also learn about some of the more interesting, yet not often discussed, research on complex play (e.g., hide and seek) and response variability (e.g., varying requests and conversation statements) in individuals with autism.
