Hello Parents & Guardians
The Autism Learning Partnership Branch of the Department of Education
and Early Childhood Development is pleased to inform you that the online autism
training program, ASD and Behavioural Interventions: An Introduction for
School Personnel – Access for Parents/Guardians, will now be available at
no cost to all parents and guardians of school-aged children with Autism
Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in New Brunswick. Although ASD and Behavioural
Interventions: An Introduction for School Personnel was designed to meet
the needs of educational personnel working with children and youth with ASD
within the school setting, parents and guardians will also benefit from access
to a slightly modified version of this online training program.
Enrolled parents/guardians will have access to online modules pertaining
to the basic concepts of ASD, the impact of ASD on learning, as well as the
interventions that aim to address the skill deficits associated with ASD.
These modules will help parents gain an understanding of the characteristics of
ASD and offer them initial training in the evidenced-based interventions being
used by school personnel that support learners with ASD. Parents will
then be better equipped with the tools to further understand, support and actively
participate in their child’s intervention.
registration will take place between January 9-31, 2019 and will be done
through the Department of Education and Early Childhood website.
The course will begin on February 7, 2019. Also note that the next
period of online registration for the parents of preschool-aged children is
from February 6-18, 2019.
