How’s everything two weeks after your child went back to school? September could be stressful for students and parents affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. It’s a month of transitions with many unknowns and new things to learn and to adapt to. How can parents work with the school so that our children will have a successful school year? For those who are new to autism, what is Individual Education Plan (IEP) and how does it work?? What can we do to prepare for IEP meeting? What to expect, how to follow up…and the list goes on!

Bohdanna Popowycz M.Ed, BCBA has been involved with individuals on the autism spectrum (from toddlers to adults) since the early 90’s. Her background and education, specifically in autism, started in the States under the supervision, guidance and training at a Lovaas Replication Site. This allowed Bohdanna the honour and privilege to move to different lands and learn from various professionals in the field. She and her family moved to British Columbia in 2001 where she began building relationships with schools in the Lower Mainland. She had been involved in the inception of the ABASW program in Surrey, and currently works closely with school districts across the Mainland and in the States. One of her current passions is working together with a family and all stakeholders to build a solid IEP, in which functional and useful transitions can be made for the betterment of a youth’s life as they learn and grow towards adulthood.
Coffee/tea and light refreshments will be provided.
Please RSVP to Stella firstname.lastname@example.org before September 27th.
