consultations with a BCBA-D. Workshop 1 will provide an overview of various services recommended to
caregivers of a child with ASD. Workshop 2 will provide an overview of Autism and Applied Behaviour Analysis
(ABA) and why ABA is an effective treatment for those with ASD. Workshop 3 will focus on developing positive
interactions as a foundation to teach a variety of different skills in these early stages. After attending the series
of workshop there are four, 30-minute, 1:1 consultations, where caregivers meet with the BCBA-D to identify and develop basic skills that could include – communication, self help skills or day to day routines. The 1:1 consultations are for both the caregiver and child to attend. Workshops are delivered virtually and only caregivers attend those. The 1:1 consultations can be virtual or in person, based on preference and availability.
