Big news from the U.S. for those who would are struggling with understanding the behaviours of their children with special needs, and how to manage them, and teach their children.
The Autism Partnership Foundation, a U.S. based and world-leading service provider (they have an office here in Singapore) for individuals with ASD and related disorders has launched a FREE 40 hour training in Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) for anyone interested.
ABA is the gold standard treatment approach for ASD and related disorders, with a strong evidence base for its effectiveness. You can read more about it at: https://www.autismspeaks.org/applied-be ... ysis-aba-0
This 40 hour training covers the task list of a Registered Behaviour Technician, a professional certification in ABA issued by the Behaviour Analyst Certification Board (BACB). This is the level of training that qualifies one to be a front line staff working with individuals with ASD and related disorders. You read that right. And it's free.
*Note that the 40 hour training is only one component to apply for certification.*
Detailed information can be found at: https://autismpartnershipfoundation.org/courses/rbt/
Note that you would need to register an account with the BACB beforehand as you will need to produce your BACB ID to sign up for the course. The account is free to register and takes less than 5 mins. You can do so at https://www.bacb.com/
I hope that this is welcome news for some of you parents out there. Cheers!
