Hong Kong 3-Days Parents ABA Training Workshop


Parent education and skills training are integral parts of Autism Partnership’s model of service and we believe that parent involvement and ability to help their child are essential for obtaining the best long-term outcome for a child.

In this coming March 2019, AP will be conducting a Parent Training Workshop in Hong Kong for parents with children with ASD. In this 3-days workshop, parents will learn and apply hands-on skills including developing appropriate reinforcers, increasing spontaneous communication and using reinforcement to increase appropriate behaviours skills. Parents will also be applying and practising skills with different children under the guidance of our Program Supervisor.

Testimonial:

“This parent training was an eye-opening experience that helped me realize the things I can do to help my child. I have learned some ways to introduce new reinforcers and toys to my 3-year-old. These are methods that I have never thought of before! And realize that there are countless opportunities that I can get my child to talk. (The therapist named it as Communication Temptation.) This training has made a difference in our lives, it’s essential for us to master the skills needed to get along with our ASD child!”

(Mrs. Wong, 3 years old ASD Kid’s mother)
