    In this discussion area, please feel free to share your experience in implementing A.B.A. programs in the school system. We would particularly like to hear from those parents who converted their school teams to A.B.A. We’d like to hear the nightmares as well as the success stories.

    Any insight that can be shared by school-based special education assistants to help parents would also be very meaningful.

    Hey Everyone, just a heads up…registration is filling up quickly! Please register now, seats are limited!

    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.

    Individuals with ASD and other special needs may often display a variety problem behaviours; this may include aggression, property destruction, self-injury and tantrums among many others. Often, these behaviours may significantly impact an individual’s, and their family’s, day to day life. Functional analysis is an assessment used to determine the function of behaviour (why an individual behaves the way they do), and helps determine the most effective treatment.

    In her presentation, Katie will discuss what functional analysis is, general methodology, as well as relevant case studies and examples. Katie will also illustrate how sometimes results of functional analysis can be undifferentiated and idiosyncratic in nature, and further analysis is needed.

    Door Entrance will be:
    Parents & Students: $2.00
    BCBA & other professionals: $5.00

    *All proceeds goes to the student alliance in order for us to continue to host more events.

    Seating will be limited, so please register for the event by emailing studentrep@bc-aba.org

    Pro Bono Lawyer Currently Available to Assist with Your Rights in B.C. Elementary Schools

    The case of Hewko says your child is entitled to a meaningful education.

    But what is a meaningful education to YOUR child? If you have a behavioural consultant, you already know the answer to this question. In fact, it’s on paper, and it is the duty of the school system to implement the methods and target levels prescribed by the consultant.

    I am currently accepting cases pro bono, in other words free legal services, where there is a behavioural consultant involved in your child’s home education, and you want that education to be consistent with the child’s schooling.

    If you want more background on my practice and experience, feel free to read my blog on this topic. I put the link below.

    You can get a hold of me at 604-440-9562 or info@joubinlaw.ca if you’d like my help.
