Effective Solutions for Teachers - ABA Training
One very important issue facing families in Australia is the education and treatment of children with autism spectrum disorders.
In Australia, the number of children receiving a diagnosis of autism continues to rise. In 2012, Autism Asperger’s Advocacy Australia (A4) reported that 1 in every 63 Australian school children have a formal autism diagnosis. This means that most Australian teachers will be responsible for educating a child with autism at some point within their careers.
Many teachers feel underprepared to work effectively with children with autism or to address behaviours of concern displayed by children in the classroom. We are pleased to offer a teacher training workshop to help give teachers the tools they will need to effectively work with children with autism, learning difficulties or behaviours of concern. The format of the workshop is flexible to suit your specific needs.
Topics covered in the workshop can include:
- An introduction and overview of the science of applied behaviour analysis (ABA)
- Practical strategies for understanding and preventing challenging behaviour
- Evidence-based teaching methods for students with special needs
- Writing SMART learning goals
- Data Collection
- Monitoring progress towards student goals
- Class-wide positive behaviour support
We are currently aligning our teacher ABA training with the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (APST), so teachers can obtain professional development credits by participating in our workshops. Individual teachers are welcome to register for our introductory ABA Training Workshop. Alternatively, we are able to come to you for groups of 10 or more.
