Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) can be an effective therapy for kids on the autism spectrum. For parents wondering how ABA works and whether it's right for their child, this live session will offer straightforward information and an opportunity to ask questions at the end. Presented as a Q&A session with Tareema Jean-Baptiste, NPN Programs Manager, and Rose McLean, pediatric physical therapist and owner of Chicago Pediatric Therapy and Wellness Center, this webinar will address:
- The philosophy behind ABA therapy
- Types of behaviors ABA can address
- How to incorporate ABA into your child's schedule
- How a child's progress is measured
- And much more!
Like all of NPN's developmental differences programming, this webinar is free and open to the public!
About the speaker
Rose McLean has been specializing in pediatrics since 2004. Upon graduating from Northwestern University with her doctorate in physical therapy, she began her career at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. In the creation of the Chicago Pediatric Therapy & Wellness Center, she not only wanted families to have a center where multi-disciplinary communication and therapist collaboration for each child was a priority, but she also wanted recreational and educational programs available for families to access outside of their one-on-one therapy sessions.
