Starting ABA therapy for the first time can be overwhelming, especially if ABA is unfamiliar. This course will explain what ABA is, focusing on what we teach and how we teach, the process for beginning service, the clinical team involved, the intake process and assessment, and the components of an ABA session. We will review how play, direct teaching, data collection, and behaviour reduction strategies are implemented in session, and what you can expect for home-based vs. centre-based sessions. This comprehensive look into ABA therapy will give parents an understanding of what’s anticipated when starting this new service.
