ABA Ireland is a voluntary group of academics, professionals, parents and students dedicated to providing ABA information and educational services to members of the community who would derive benefit from the science, such as parents of typically developing children with challenging behaviour, individuals with acquired brain injuries and people with autism.
Since our formation in 2011, we have sought to achieve our goals in a variety of ways. For example, we have organsied free Family Fun Days and Autism Friendly cinema screenings for the families of people with disabilities, facilitated parent and professional training workshops in conjunction with partner organisations and made submissions to government on the future of disability policy. One of the most powerful ways in which we have managed to connect with people who could benefit from ABA is through the internet and social media.
In 2013, we launched our website. It allows us to direct provide useful information to all our stakeholders with ease. Our Facebook group now has over 2,500 members and continues to grow at a rapid pace. To mark this new milestone, we are launching this blog.
Every day, numerous members of our group provide links to materials that are of interest to our community. One purpose of this blog is to compile and share those links and materials in a way that makes them more acessible to people who are not members of our group. In time, we also hope that we can use it to share original contributions and materials that are not available elsewhere.
