    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.

    Hi everyone, the latest edition of the Association for Science in Autism Treatment publication is here!

    This free publication is a must-read for parents, friends and family of all who are navigating treatment options for a child.

    When it comes to selecting ASD treatments for your family member, knowledge is power.

    This publication will give you information about the research behind many of the common treatments for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

    Some treatments are backed by strong scientific evidence, but others have little or no research support. ASAT's goal is to provide you with a resource to assist you when making treatment decisions or when confronted with new treatment options.

    This publication is free and available on line at:

    Hi All,

    I'm posting on behalf of a family in Surrey.

    My son, who is high functioning in ASD spectrum, would be moving on to secondary school next year. We live in Surrey, and I would like to ask of any stories or feedback that you would like to share regarding ABA supports in schools in Surrey/White Rock.
    He has been having very successful intensive ABA therapy both at home, and at school with ABA support worker. We wish him to have the ABA support at secondary school continuously.
    Thank you!

    Pls share at hksaba@yahoo.ca

    Thank you!

    {Oh Dear}

    Hi Featers…. Starting our daughter off at the Lifeskills program at Eric Hamber has been a total disaster. It's been beyond a total disaster, in fact. The situation is getting progressively worse and I'm very worried.

    I've got a meeting on Monday at the school board (with Eleanor Cramb) to discuss other program and placement options but really feel as if I need to go in armed with a very clear idea of BC Special Education policies and… my legal rights.

    I also am doing much of this on my own, need support and am wondering how I can find a social worker that might be able to help. And/or, I need to get in touch with other agencies that could help steer and educate. .Any idea or suggestions?

    Please feel free to email me at:
    cathy.fitzhugh@gmail.com

    Thanks Very Much, In Advance
