Fun events for kids with autism planned

Families with autistic children in the Meaford area are welcome to attend a new art therapy program hosted at Meaford Hall every Sunday from April 12 through May 31.

A news release from Autism Ontario Grey-Bruce and Meaford Hall and Cultural Foundation says the program “offers a nonthreatening way to deal with processing emotions,” and will “help the children to relax and enjoy themselves while they are learning social skills in a controlled environment.”

The program will run from 2:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. and is designed for children ages five to fifteen years with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Attendees are asked to register online at https://meafordblueprint.eventbrite.ca.

ASD is a neurological irregularity often characterized by diminished communication and interpersonal skills, repetitive interests and activities, along with intellectual gifts which may include reading, drawing and memorization skills.

“Often families dealing with ASD are so overwhelmed and intimidated by extracurricular activities that children miss out on experiences that can help them grow and develop socially and emotionally,” chapter president Jennifer Miller said in the release.

“We hope this is one of many partnerships that will support inclusion.”

A similar art-therapy program is offered in Owen Sound at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery on consecutive Saturdays starting April 18 and ending June 13, excluding May 2. The Owen Sound event runs from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The first date is fully booked but Miller said in an interview that no one will be turned away in Meaford or Owen Sound should more people come. Registration is done at http://owensoundblueprint.eventbrite.ca

There are an estimated 2,800 people in Grey-Bruce diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, 60-70% of whom are children or youths, Miller said. What causes autism is unknown, she said.

Qu’est-ce que l’analyse comportementale appliquée (ACA)?

L’ACA se veut l’approche privilégiée pour comprendre le comportement, réduire les comportements à défi et enseigner des nouveaux comportements et des nouvelles habiletés. L’ACA gagne de plus en plus d’attention dans les dernières années. Mais, c’est quoi exactement l’ACA? Cet atelier vise à démystifier l’ACA en examinant de près ses principes de base ainsi que des exemples de son application au quotidien. Les participantes et participants quitteront armé d’une meilleure compréhension de cette approche scientifique du comportement.

Animatrice : Suzanne Murphy œuvre dans le domaine des services à l’enfance et à la jeunesse depuis plus de trente ans, principalement dans le domaine du comportement et de l’autisme. Les mandats qui lui ont été confiés au cours de ses nombreuses années d’expérience lui ont permis de travailler dans différents contextes, notamment dans le système scolaire, les services de garde, les programmes de jour et les programmes basés sur l’analyse comportementale appliquée (ACA/ABA). De plus, Suzanne a souvent eu l’occasion d’intervenir directement auprès des enfants et des adolescents ayant un TSA et de leurs familles.
