Continuing Education

Autism and ABA Therapy

Live Online Info Session

Join us for a live online info session about our Autism and ABA Therapy Course with Suzanne Adams, Director of Human Services Programs. Ashton College staff will also be available to advise and answer your questions about admissions and other general questions about the course.

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) is a system of autism treatment based on behaviourist theories which states that desired behaviours can be taught through a system of rewards and consequences. ABA can be thought of as applying behavioural principles to behavioural goals and carefully measuring the results. Students will learn about the neurodevelopmental and behavioural aspects of people with autism spectrum disorder. Students will learn about the causes, symptoms, diagnostics tools, research-based interventions, and will cover autism spectrum disorder from birth to adulthood.

We look forward to connecting with you online! To find out more about the course:

Meet the Instructor: Suzanne Adams

"I have had the honour of working in the human services field in different capacities for over 30 years, from assisting adults with developmental disabilities to live their lives more fully to working within classroom environments.  Teaching has been a natural progression from my passion for helping people reach their potential. In 2001, I began working in the private post-secondary arena, developing programs and instructing students. My career has been centered in the field of special needs. My roles in this field have provided me with experience and insight into the BC school system and the needs of students. I am a lifelong learner and continue to take courses, attend conventions and workshops to continue my professional development so that students always receive the best of me. I believe that an instructor is morally obligated to enter the classroom with only the highest expectations for each and every one of her students. In understanding how my students learn, I can maximize the positive benefits that naturally come along with any self-fulfilling prophecy. As a team and with dedication, perseverance and hard work, students can rise to the occasion."
