Free Workshop for Parents about Intensive Behaviour Intervention (IBI) for Children with Autism

The Behaviour Institute is providing a two-hour workshop for parents of children with autism who are considering IBI services or waiting for those services to start.

The workshop will describe what IBI is, show videos on how it is presented and help families learn how to begin to use IBI principles to develop their child’s skills in communication, following instructions, and early learning skills. The workshop is intended to help families who are waiting for IBI develop some practical strategies that they can use now.

The workshop will cover:

• What is IBI?
• How are children taught using IBI?
• Examples of how to teach early learning skills
• Examples of how to teach improved communication
• Examples of how to teach a child with autism to follow adult requests.

Videotape examples and hand-outs will be presented.
