Applied Behaviour Analysis for Autism
Duncan Fennemore, Consultant Behaviour Analyst, The Centre for Educational Intervention in Early Childhood
Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) lies at the cutting edge of interventions for individuals with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder and of related conditions. Duncan and his team specialise in home and school based programmes based on ABA principles with the aim of maximising progress across IQ, language, play and adaptive (ie daily living) skills, as well as managing problem behaviours. Duncan will show how ABA programmes can be individualised to meet the precise needs of each client and can boast long-lasting improvements across all functional skill repertoires.
Treating Autism is a Journey – One Family’s Story
Jo-Ann who is Director and Founder of Autism Parent Empower will share her story of her son who regressed at 17 months into the world of Autism. By the age of 2 she described him as an empty shell … her little boy had gone missing. Through family perseverance and a two pronged intervention of ABA and Nutrition she found her boy again. She is now passionate about early intervention and making parents aware of help and support available to them. With thousands of parent followers from across the globe she is determined to change the mindset of parents to help them, their child and their families live the most fulfilling life possible.
There will tea and coffee with snacks throughout the day. During the last hour we will offer lunch (included in the price, free to members) and there will be an opportunity for chatting informally to our speakers, TA team and other parents.
This event is aimed at parents new to autism and at those with more experience. If you know a family that could benefit from the information, please be sure to share these details with them.
The Roadshow is free for Treating Autism members (please book online and you will receive a full refund after you attend the event). Your members includes your family, so you can bring a family member or a friend free of charge.
We would like to thank the Big Lottery for funding our charity and enabling us to continue to support our community of parents. We would also like to thank our event sponsor Mandi Mart for enabling us to provide a much-needed socializing opportunity for parents that will follow the presentations.
