Having seen the tremendous improvement in Ka Chun’s attentive, cognitive and social skills, teachers at the Salvation Army Tsuen Wan Nursery School were impressed with the significant progress Ka Chun has achieved after receiving (Applied Behavior Analysis) ABA treatment at AP and education at Aoi Pui School for 4 months. To provide the teachers with more knowledge about using ABA and its teaching methods, the School invited AP to conduct a workshop on May 30, 2015. Our Program Supervisor, Nicole Kwok, gave a presentation on how to apply ABA in teaching social skills and dealing with inflexible behavior of students with autism. Nicole used videos to present some scenarios that teachers might come across during class and demonstrated how to minimize similar incidences of inflexible behavior in students. She also used some of the examples of Ka Chun to illustrate how to teach students with autism in a systematical way, such as how to make eye contact when speaking to someone. Following Nicole’s presentation, Ka Chun’s mom also shared some updates about the progress of Ka Chun since he started receiving ABA treatment. According to his mom, Ka Chun showed little interest in playing with peers and generally did not respond to other people’s interaction with him. However after some treatment at AP and attending APS, Ka Chun has improved significantly in Chinese writing, English vocabulary and calculating addition in Mathematics. In particular, he has begun to show much more initiative in interpersonal interaction. The teachers were very encouraged to see the improvement in Ka Chun and found the presentation on applying ABA and Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) techniques in teaching invaluable.
