									                  Intensive Behavioural Intervention Training
                                      for
     Instructor Therapists Hired Through the Direct Funding option (DFO)
                         Autism Intervention Program


         Training initiative funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services
            Coordinated by CON*NECT to be delivered by identified Colleges

This training initiative is for Instructor Therapists (ITs) who provide IBI services to children in the
Autism Intervention Program through funding provided by the program’s Direct Funding Option
(DFO) The training is provided at no cost to ITs participating, however, the IT’s Clinical
Supervisor must agree that the training being offered is relevant to the training needs that have
been identified in consultation with the family. In Module 1 participants will learn background
introductory information relating to the delivery of Intensive Behavioural Intervention and have an
opportunity to discuss content of all the modules with the teacher. In cases where this is not
required, ITs are welcome to register for any or all of the individual modules. Participants will
receive a certificate of attendance upon completion of each module.
