Professional Development for Educators
Family Centred Practices Group offers training and workshops for various school districts throughout the lower mainland, as well as private schools.
We have created an 11 part training series entitled, Application of Evidence-based Practice for Children with Autism or Related Disabilities in School Environments.
This comprehensive training for educators is based on the National Autism Center’s report titled, Evidence-based Practice and Autism in Schools: A Guide to Providing Appropriate Interventions to Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
The course introduces fundamental learning principles that inform Applied Behaviour Analysis-based interventions for children with autism or related disabilities. Established evidence-based interventions are discussed with a focus on the application of research in practice.
Enlist us to provide the entire series for educators at your school or in your district or have us present topics of interest at an upcoming professional development day. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Introduction to ABA and Evidence-based Practice for Children with Autism in Schools
- Structured and Natural Teaching Strategies
- Teaching Social Skills and Promoting Friendships
- Functional Approach to Challenging Behaviour
- Structuring the Environment for Effective Teaching
- Home – School Collaboration
- Successful Inclusion of Students with Autism
- IEP Planning and Development
Note that the workshops can be modified to be offered for full day training (approx. 5 hours) or half day training (approx. 2.5 hours) and can be offered to groups of various sizes.
The course can be individualised to meet the required training needs, we are able to offer the complete training series or any portion of the series, please do not hesitate to inquire re: training options. We are also happy to prepare new training workshops to meet your training needs.
