Geneva Centre for Autism is a clinical, resource and training centre for children, youth and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), their families and the professionals who support them. Geneva Centre is the only organization of its kind in Canada, and is an international leader in the field of autism.
Founded on the principles of partnership and skill building, Geneva Centre provides direct intervention, information, and support services to more than 3,000 individuals and families in the Toronto Region. Additionally, Geneva Centre’s Research, Education and Training Institute provides comprehensive education and training services to parents and professionals around the world to help build capacity to integrate individuals with autism into classrooms and communities.
Geneva Centre for Autism’s Research Education and Training has hosted a Summer Training Institute every summer for 32 years. Since 2007, Ontario’s Ministry of Education has provided funding for this event to support the implementation of Policy/ Program Memorandum (PPM) 140, Incorporating Methods of Applied Analysis (ABA) into Programs for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
This live training event will begin with a choice of two day-long concurrent training sessions, Practical Applications of Applied Behaviour Analysis in the Classroom and Transitioning to Meaningful Post-Secondary Life. On Day 2 educators will be brought together for a keynote event with internationally recognized speaker Dr. Paula Kluth.
