This has come up on the UK ABA Facebook page and may be of interest to some of you. Nothing to do with me, although I do know Patrick McGreevy who is a big shot in the world of ABA.

This workshop will describe how to coordinate and use these instruments to plan an ongoing program of instruction for children and adults with mild-to-severe disabilities, including, but not limited to, autism.
