The ABA Support Network is hosting a presentation that is very relevant to those us managing an ABA program using only the $22,000 or $6,000 available from the AFU.
It’s a challenging proposition and we are lucky to have some very respected Behaviour Consultants donate their time and energy to help us understand how to manage our programs under very limited budgets.
The following is from the ABA Support Network website:
Special Presentation – based on feedback from many parents, we are going to talk about the challenges of running quality treatment programs with limited funding from the government. What do families do that don’t have money over and above the $22,000 or $6,000 per year?
Topic: What Can My AFU Funds Do?
When: Tuesday Feb, 11 7-9pm
Where: Surrey Sport and Leisure Center, Arena Side Upstairs Meeting Room
(16555 Fraser Hwy, Surrey, BC V4N 0E9)
At this presentation, you will hear from a panel of BCBAs, and their experience with what you can expect from both over-6 and under-6 funding from the Ministry. Topics to be discussed include:
1. Quality vs. Quantity — sample ABA programs of different funding models.
2. Home vs. school — how to ensure that your child is receiving the best support and supervision with the funds you have available to you.
3. Collaboration — other resources which can be used to help pay for collaboration with other professionals, such as SLP and OT.
4. Goal setting — what to consider when setting goals with your consultant.
5. The ethical perspective of your BCBA — ethical considerations for your BCBA providing consultation on a limited budget.
6. Tips and troubleshooting — ideas to help use the funding creatively and maintaining a great team.
We will also end with a Q & A, and invite parents to share their feedback.
