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.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW THERAPIST!!
A fantastic Maple Ridge family is looking for a new therapist to join our team. You will be working in a fun, stable environment with an amazing teenage girl who has been in a program for many years, and is a dream to work with. All therapists have been with this team for at least two years, and we all have alot of fun together. Experience would be preferred, although training will be provided. Email firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!October 19, 2005 at 6:03 pm #9000
I just wanted to offer a little piece of information that was passed on to me by a friend who works in an insurance company.
I have a therapist/interventionist whom I just took down to a workshop in Vancouver. In doing so – I end up paying for the girls rooms, their food, travel, etc and the cost of the workshop.
When we arrived home on her following shift – the girl informed that she will be quitting and moving away. She told me she had planned on doing this for about 2 months prior.
I and my child were basically used so that she could add another workshop to her resume. My child will not benefit in anyway from the training that I just provided her. Yet I have no recourse to get that money back.
My friend who works at the insurance company says that before they are taken to any training that is expensive – they have to sign a contract saying that they won't leave for 12 months or they will have to pay for the costs of the workshop themselves.
It is something I will do in the future as I had NO idea this girl was leaving – none. The girl has been with us for almost 3 years.
Just thought I would pass along the info for anyone else so no other family/child has to lose money like this.
