“The Practical Application of ABA to Self-Help Skills” Conference – Korea

Parents of children with ASD or developmental delays always found it difficult to improve their children’s toilet training and eating habits, which are the most essential life skills for the children to live with. Particularly for toileting training, there are many non-scientifically and unproved methods prevailed which may cause confusion to the parents and lead to the undesirable effect. In addition, many parents are with concern of how to help their children with a serious aversion to many food to overcome avoidance and pickiness on food.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of establishment of the AP Hong Kong, AP Korea invited two ASD experts with rich experiences on providing expertized solutions to the above problems that many parents concerned with. Through the conference, parents can learn how the APM is applied to the toilet training and eating habits with video examples. Do not miss this great opportunity to learn these practical self-help skills! Parents of ASD children, teachers, and therapists are all welcomed.

Toilet training is a topic many parents and professionals have difficulty with and the information we find on the internet and books are often misguided. In this presentation, Ms. Daeun will share procedures of successful toilet training for children with ASD. The contents include pre-requisite procedures, independent toileting, and nighttime toilet training. She will also talk about common bowel movement difficulties and systematic and effective approaches.

Prevalence of problematic feeding/mealtime behaviors is higher for children with ASD, compared to their neurotypical peers. In fact, children with ASD often exhibit more than one impediment. Although related, represent a range of distinct needs and sources. Many Families perceive these obstacles globally (i.e., child has difficulty eating). Conventional methods are typically short-sighted and aimed at reducing problem behaviors. Families report such procedures as stressful to apply and distressing for the child to endure. Consequently, the notion of intervening becomes overwhelming. Without adequate support, Families tend to avoid conflict (i.e., accommodate the child), which serves to perpetuate the cycle.

This Seminar will offer guidance to navigate the perils of tackling aberrant eating, Including:
• A structured framework to discern/understand different types of impaired eating.
• How to pinpoint core deficiencies, excesses and prerequisites to target initially.
• A systematic approach to breakdown component steps.
• Proactive strategies to remediate specific forms of maladaptive eating
*Will be Described, Explained and Demonstrated
• Overall Goals:
*To Enhance harmony, proficiency, flexibility and healthy/safe food consumption;
*To Diminish behavioral tactics that impede/hinder achieving these goals.
