Autism Ontario has launched a province-wide online survey. We want to hear from the thousands of families, individuals and professionals across the province that access Autism Ontario supports, services and information. The information gathered in the survey will provide important feedback on our programs, identify regional gaps in service, as well as provide insight into what families and supporters would like Autism Ontario to focus its efforts on.

Your opinion is extremely important. It is how we focus our efforts on the areas that matter most to you and your family.

Prenez 10 minutes pour nous parler de vos besoins!

Autisme Ontario réalise présentement un sondage provincial en ligne. Ce sondage s’adresse aux milliers de personnes qui ont accès aux soutiens, aux services et aux informations fournis par Autisme Ontario.
Ce sondage nous permettra d’apprendre ce que vous pensez de nos programmes et de découvrir si certaines régions auraient besoin de services qui n’existent pas encore. Les renseignements ainsi recueillis nous aideront aussi à comprendre sur quels aspects les familles et les fournisseurs de soins aimeraient qu’Autisme Ontario concentre ses efforts.

Votre opinion est extrêmement importante. Elle nous incite à concentrer nos efforts sur les aspects qui comptent le plus pour vous et pour votre famille.

Webinar: Everyday ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) with Leslie Cohen 
Wednesday, August 6th, 2014 from 12:30pm – 1:30pm 


Webinar Description: 
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) has long held a key role in the treatment of people with ASD. A central component of this role is the removal of barriers that prevent people with ASD from effectively accessing social, educational, clinical, and community resources. 
The focus of Everyday ABA is to provide a basic toolbox of positive and effective behavioural strategies for increasing adaptive behaviours that compete with, reduce, and replace challenging behaviours. 

The Everyday ABA webinar will provide an overview of the basic behavioral toolbox we will be exploring in more depth during subsequent workshops throughout the province. It also provides an opportunity for participants to ask direct questions about challenging behaviors, and become more familiar with behavioral problem solving strategies. 

Leslie Cohen has been working with children and adults diagnosed with ASD for the past 16 years in the United States and Canada. She specializes in helping caregivers effectively support people with ASD through creative, positive, science-based interventions. She is a licensed psychologist in the state of New York and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst at the PhD level. Dr. Cohen is currently the clinical director of L & A Educational Services, and a school psychologist with
the Amherst Public Schools in Massachusetts, where she designs data collection systems and training programs for staff, and consults to multidisciplinary ASD teams.
