The class will address several topics that outline the basic foundation of a Lovaas-based treatment program and will include information on autism and general behaviour strategies. The main focus will however be on practical application with a 50% hands on approach in small groups, with the remaining time spent on larger group discussion and video reviews. The group will be facilitated by two highly experienced lead therapists under the supervision of Michele Shilvock, a local behaviour consultant.

    Topics to be covered:
    · The key principles of discrete trial teaching
    · Prompting
    o Different types
    o What is it and how best to use it
    · The various steps involved in a child acquiring a skill
    · Reinforcement
    o How to identify
    o How to use
    · General discussion around behaviours and the language used
    · Strategies for data collection

    Who would benefit most from the class:
    · Interested therapists or current line therapists
    · Classroom teachers and support staff
    · Those who may be supporting children with autism in other capacities.

    Date and Time: October 8th 2005 9:30-2:30am

    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.

    THE CHILD WHO COULDN'T PLAY

    i don't know if any other parents out there use limewire-it's a free file sharing program…
    here's a where you can get it:
    http://www.limewire.com/english/content/ftc.shtml

    anywho, though i have not had the time/energy as of lately to do much autism surfing, i have 'the child who chouldn't play' documentary in a shared folder, anyone that uses limewire is more than welcome, it was hard to find the address where i initially downloaded the documentary from… and have since lost it…

    when searching limewire, type 'the child who couldn't play' in the 'any type' file name box, it should find it
    eventually, i will get around to putting more autism stuff in said folder
    if anyone has trouble accessing, feel free to email me at:
    atlas_shrugging_now@yahoo.ca

    **i also have contact info for any parents seeking a private diagnosis in the vancouver area
    again, feel free to contact me and i will be happy to help

    warmest wishes
    Amie
