When providing consultative supports to childcare centres, educators are often overwhelmed by the technical jargon and seemingly ‘clinical’ approach recommended by Early Learning & Inclusion Consultants. As such, working with a Consultant can be daunting and frustrating without realizing how ABA already exists within Early Learning – approaches are often similar, just given different names between the two fields. This webinar aims to compare Early Learning pedagogy with ABA strategies to illustrate how the two fields overlap and ways that ABA may already be naturally embedded into Early Learning programming.

From this, it is the goal to enhance the relationship between ABA practitioners and Early Learning Educators to further a collaborative approach to learning and development.

Come together and prepare a meal! Cooking is a basic life skill that can lead to greater independence and possibly a job within the food industry. It can also be a way to make community and family connections by meaningfully contributing to bake sales, pot lucks, or get-togethers. People are also more apt to try a new dish they’ve made themselves, so through exposure, your child may be interested in trying new foods and expanding their food repertoire!

Participants will work 1:1 with a Therapist to follow a recipe and contribute to a meal that is prepared by the group. Participants will be taught basic cooking techniques and kitchen safety considerations. Each session ends with an opportunity to practice social behaviours and mealtime etiquette while enjoying each others’ culinary creations.

In order to foster generalization of skills, participants will be asked to bring their own utensils from home so they can learn with and practice using the items they would have available to them at home.

Best suited for youth on the spectrum that are motivated to learn independence in the kitchen and interact with peers in a mealtime format.
