Autism and the Law Series
Navigating the hundreds of pages of legalese that mandate education and health-care benefits for children with ASD can be overwhelming. These sessions simplify that process. They cover the legal rights and options that parents, advocates, and medical and therapy providers must know to ensure that children with ASD receive the benefits they deserve. Presented by experts in special education and health law, these series provide information on state and federal laws regulating private insurance, Medicaid, special education, and more. Blueprints to Special Education and Autism & Insurance – Maximizing Benefits are open to parents, medical and therapy providers, educators, and other advocates, and are presented regularly throughout Washington. Scholarships are available to WAAA members based on need.
Understanding Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
Parents of children newly diagnosed with ASD can be frustrated by the wait to get treatment. During this critical period, they want to know what they can do to help their child. These free workshops, presented by WAAA and area Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) bridge that gap. They teach parents some of the basic Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) principles to help them work with their child while they wait to secure ABA services.
