Programs & Services by Behaviour Analysis Training & Supervision (BATS)
- Social Skills
SibShops are events which provide 8-13 year old brothers and sisters of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) an opportunity to meet other siblings in a relaxed, recreational setting.
SibShops intersperse information and discussion activities with high-energy games, new friends, and cooking and craft activities to get children talking, laughing and learning. An introduction to ASD will be included to provide participants with a better understanding of the disorder and how it may impact their sibling.
This offering is best suited for: Siblings of children with autism who are interested in not only learning about ASD, but also meeting other siblings, having fun, laughing, and talking about the good and not-so-good parts of having a sibling with special needs.
When introducing applied behaviour analysis (ABA) to new folks, the language and terminology is often overwhelming and confusing. As a result, parents receiving ABA services and ABA clinicians often have to put great deal of effort into fostering family engagement and explaining to others the ABA approach, despite ABA principles existing naturally in day-to-day routines. This webinar aims to provide ways to explain ABA terms in everyday analogies to promote engagement in our science and facilitate an applied and practical approach to behaviour analysis.
Follow-up consultations will be available to support individualized discussions about family engagement and how to translate (describe) specific ABA terms.
