ABIA offers support to those who live with, work with, or love a child with autism. If you’re a parent, carer, ABA professional, a student wanting to train in ABA, an adult wanting to retrain or work with children on the spectrum, you’ve come to the right place.
Our ABA Parent Support Network and our Family Support Helpline are our two key services for families. The Parent Support Network is an informal group made up of families who are using ABA as their preferred autism intervention. These are mums and dads who’ve gone through the process of diagnosis and ABA implementation. This support network is free to join, though you need to be an ABA member. There’s a closed/private Facebook forum where you can share your ABA/autism challenges and triumphs with people who know exactly what you’re going through.
The Family Support Helpline is a free telephone service available to anyone thinking about implementing ABA. The call is provided by a volunteer who has a child with autism and has used ABA as their preferred intervention method. To book a free half hour session email or call Jo.
We encourage you to become a member of ABIA so that you receive ongoing support and updates, and so that you can access our therapists registry.
