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.

I have seen him talk and he is very very good - a 40 year eminent career in ABA but also a Dad to a daughter with SN

Didn't know that about his Sickof!
How are you btw? smile

All well, touch wood, on diabetes and autism fronts. Good on you for doing the seminar!

Very glad to hear it!
I'll do my best for Mumsnet and all the wonderful people on here doing their best for their children.
Off to Chicago with CH and co to ABAI in May. Very excited.

You are coming to Chicago!!!! That is great news! I have already started to plan my schedule, so many things I want to go to. Where you flying from?

PleasantSpice Mon 03-Mar-14 07:07:06

Pat's daughter has DS if I remember rightly. Seen him present workshops 3 times, always been excellent.

moondog Mon 03-Mar-14 08:48:41

Yes PS! I was reinforced with a grant!
I'm going from Manchester. You will be going from London I imagine?

StarlightMcKingsThree Mon 03-Mar-14 11:41:18

I'd love to. I'm too poor sad

MariaNotChristmas Mon 03-Mar-14 13:05:00

Star, you need to offer yourself as a 'senior tutor' (ie not a qualified consultant, but not a £12/hour student) to a rich family doing ABA

Work for 3 hours twice a month, and they can pay for the course wink

StarlightMcKingsThree Mon 03-Mar-14 13:32:16

Anyone wanna hire me?

I have a cupboard full of likely re-inforcers for the pre-school age. I will work for expenses plus course fee if you look after my toddler while I do it.

MariaNotChristmas Mon 03-Mar-14 13:48:54

I would love to hire you if I could afford to hire anyone!!!
<thinking cap> I wonder if another preschool-age parent has miraculously managed to get allocated respite hours... if so they could use their 'care' allocated direct payments to train and employ you to do ABA with babysit their child while they have a little break take yours to the park

PleasantSpice Tue 04-Mar-14 07:15:43

Yes we are flying from London. Can't wait! Glad you got a grant. Where you staying?

PleasantSpice Tue 04-Mar-14 07:16:33

Sounds like a great idea starlight!
