This training offers hands-on instruction for parents, caregivers, and direct care staff to address the most frequent and problematic areas of daily living for many individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and other developmental disabilities. The curriculum is based on the principles of applied behaviour analysis (ABA) and focuses on
developing the specific techniques and skills shown to be successful in these areas. This program provides training the management of toileting behaviours. Caregivers will attend a series of weekly sessions in which they will learn new methods of observing and recording problem behaviour, how to implement techniques to change behaviour, and how to track progress. Throughout the program, participating parents and caregivers will be expected to collect and submit data related to their experiences in implementing behaviour management techniques. At the conclusion of the program, the trainers will provide follow-up consultation with individual caregivers and staff as needed.
