Autism Intervention Services Protocol
The Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services provides funding for a range of services including Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) and Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI). The goal is to help children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to develop skills in key areas and to address behaviours that interfere with their functioning.
All district school boards employ ABA expertise professionals that are responsible for supporting principals, teachers, and multi-disciplinary transition teams by providing and coordinating ASD training and resources, and facilitating collaboration between service providers and schools.
In accordance with PPM 140 (2007), the Upper Grand District School Board uses ABA methods with students with ASD where appropriate and in accordance with the students’ IEPs.
