Free Parent Education Videos

Kinark Child and Family Services is offering families educational videos that provide introductory and foundational information about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). Our goal is to provide families with practical and easy-to-understand information so they can ensure their child(ren)’s success.

In these videos, families will meet Kinark clinicians who are committed to sharing the latest research and their clinical expertise. Families can access these videos online and go through them at a time and pace that is convenient for them.

We hope families find these videos informative and look forward to sharing more resources with you in the future.

Video #1 – Foundations of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)

This video provides an introduction to ABA and will help families gain a better understanding of how their child can benefit from its application. Viewers will learn how to define behaviour, identify the “ABC’s” of behaviour, and use reinforcement to support and reinforce skills development. Common terminology and the functions of behaviour will also be discussed. The video is one-hour long and can be paused at any time.

Why should families watch this video?

Understanding ABA learning strategies helps parents to make the most of teaching opportunities to support their child at home. Knowing the ABA terminology can help parents to effectively collaborate with their child(ren)’s service provider and play an active role in their treatment planning.
