The Fulfilling Potential Workshop Series are FREE workshops throughout the year. These workshops are a user-friendly introduction to practical concepts and strategies for teaching skills and managing challenging behaviour with compassion and effectiveness. Classes are developed and instructed by Manitoba’s leading experts in applied behaviour analysis.
Who are These Workshops for?
- This series is open to any individuals or teams who support or work with people who present challenging behavioural needs – especially individuals with developmental disabilities or autism.
- Individuals who support children will find our workshops to be especially beneficial; however, our content is also relevant to youth and adults, including those with and those without disabilities and delays.
- Some of our most frequent workshop participants include school staff, childcare centers, and parents and caregivers – and our feedback has been very positive!
- Participants also often include social workers, foster parents, students, summer camps, dental professionals, supported employment staff, direct support professionals, and many others.
