Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as a field is exploding. This young science has been widely endorsed and accepted as treatment for children with autism by many well-respected organizations like US Surgeon General. Despite popularity, ABA seems to be largely misunderstood by many families of children with autism (CWA) and other professionals. There are thousands of professionals helping children with special needs in the Philippines and unfortunately there are only 3 Board Certified Behavior Analysts’ (BCBA) among them. Ms. Kathryn Mendoza is the only and first native BCBA residing in the Philippines. She will bring to us clear understanding of the science, professionals in the service team and ABA as a treatment for CWA.
There will only be 30 slots available.
