WORKSHOP DATES FOR JANUARY TO JUNE 2011
Integrated Education and Communication (IEC) are committed to providing participants with informed practical strategies in a variety of educational and psychological areas. IEC aim to provide participants with workshop activities and theoretical information to facilitate understanding of the topics presented.
The introductory ABA workshop provides participants with a sound knowledge of the principles of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) with particular emphasis on discrete trial training (DTT).
The specialist workshops aim to extend and develop the skills and expertise of all professionals who work with children, parents and families.
Information is supported by video footage and workshop activities such as role plays. Active participation in the workshop activities is crucial to achieving an overall understanding of the techniques used and provides an opportunity to receive feedback and ask questions.
A certificate of completion is awarded to all participants who complete each workshop. All participants who complete the introductory ABA 4 night workshop are eligible to be listed on the IEC's instructors list. The list is distributed to families who service IEC, that require instructors to work with their child on an ABA program.
