About this Event

Maltby Centre is now offering a series of online workshops for parents and caregivers! These workshops are designed to help parents understand concepts related to Applied Behaviour Analysis, access resources, and increase overall parent capacity. This online workshop is for parents living in Ontario with a valid OAP registration number.

This workshop will be most helpful for caregivers who are looking for simple, easy-to-understand information on autism. Caregivers are often looking for ways to explain their child’s autism to others and after this workshop, they will have the language to do so. This workshop will discuss diagnosis, common terminology used, prevalence rates, and research in the field of autism. As part of Foundational Family Services, you may choose to meet for an individual session with a Family Support Coordinator following this presentation to help you apply the content of this workshop to your specific family situation.

As a result of participating in this workshop you will be able to:

• Describe common key terms, language, and acronyms

• Describe the process of diagnosis of ASD

• Describe the characteristics of autism spectrum disorder and ways in which related behaviours may occur

Requirements: To access this workshop, or a follow-up session, you will need a valid Ontario Autism Program Reference number. If you do not have an OAP Reference number please contact the Maltby Centre at 613 546 8535 and ask to speak to a Family Support Coordinator. This is a free workshop.
