    hi everyone*

    i'm just re-mentioning the nice red autism-support wristbands that are now available for 5$ each.

    see them at-
    http://featbc.org/Medicare_for_Autism_Now.jpg

    i told my therapists about them and every member of our team decided to order one! if we all chip in, not only will we get the message out that we want "medicare for autism now," but we'll also help FEAT fund the information packages they send out to new parents who are struggling with how to begin helping their children…

    please consider buying the bracelets-
    (i'm also going to order them for christmas gifts…)
    it's an easy way to do a lot of good for our children.

    thanks everyone.
    keep up the good fight-
    we're making a difference evry day.

    · General discussion around behaviours and the language used
    · Strategies for data collection

    About the facilitators
    I am pleased to announce that Gabrielle Stigant and Kelley Lloyd-Jones will be the two Lead therapists facilitating the upcoming class. Both individuals are well experienced and highly trained Lead therapists who have been working in the field of behavioural intervention with children with autism for many years. Together they have logged over 7000 hours with over 30 children ranging in ages from 2.5 to 13 years of age. They have been involved in training new staff and supporting existing teams and have both acted as support staff to children in the preschool and elementary school settings. They are experienced in working with many highly respected behaviour consultants who currently work in this province and share a vast knowledge in the areas of discrete trial teaching, data collection, behaviour modification and how to train other staff.

    *Please be advised that this training class does not allow a participant to run an ABA program without direction by an approved Consultant. It is for educational purposes only.
