The Special Education Department is excited to announce the ABA for All Bonanza event running for one entire day in our school on Wednesday, June 5th, 2019. This event will showcase what we do in education to support the use of ABA Methodology, highlighting the collaboration of multiple disciplines (Behaviour Analysts, Itinerants, Child and Youth Counselors, Speech-Language Pathologists and Communication Disorder Assistants), and celebrating all the great things already happening in our Board. The ABA Bonanza is an opportunity to learn more about Educational ABA and to help all those who work in education to better understand what educational ABA is, and what is expected in an education context.
ABA is the science of behaviour and is the process of systematically applying interventions, based upon the principles of learning theory, to improve socially significant behaviours to a meaningful degree. ABA teaches social, motor, and verbal behaviours, as well as reasoning skills. ABA is especially useful in teaching behaviours to children with autism who may otherwise not develop these behaviours on their own.
Parents in the community are welcome to attend the ABA Bonanza to learn about what we do in education to support the use of ABA Methodology and to celebrate the great things already occurring in our school. Please feel free to contact the school should you have any questions about the event.
