Applied Behavioral Analysis in the therapy of autism

Participants of the training "Applied Behavioral Analysis in the Therapy of Autism"

Training for Uplift-mothers and orphanage workers

In January 2018, Uplift-mothers and staff from four orphanages for children with special needs in Kyrgyzstan participated in a twenty-hour Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) training course used in the treatment of autism. This training was conducted by our partner organization "Hand in Hand" (Russian: Рука в Руке), which supports children with autism and their families.

Although autism occurs more often, employees of Kyrgyz orphanages rarely have experience in dealing with this particular developmental disorder and do not know the diagnostic options.

The ABA training first qualifies the participants in dealing with autism and in a second step contributes to safer and more comfortable living conditions for our children in the orphanages.

We thank the trainers of "Hand in Hand" for this important professional input!
