1st iBASIS International Training Course
|Dates:||23 October 2018 - 26 October 2018|
|What is it:||Course|
|Organiser:||Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health|
|Who is it for:||University staff, Adults|
This will be the first international training workshop in the iBASIS-VIPP method of parent-mediated video-aided therapy for families of infants at-risk of autism.
This is a ‘pre-emptive’ intervention for infants at genetic risk (by virtue of having an autistic sibling, or a known genetic disorder carrying high risk for autism), or those with identified evidence of early social communication atypicalities in development in the first year.
The course will prepare participants to undertake a post-course supervised practice on two cases, which will be followed by a fidelity assessment. After that the practitioner will be able to practice the method for clinical and research purposes.
Professional qualification in a relevant clinical discipline.
Experience in working clinically with young children and families
Ideally, experience in work with autism (but this is not essential)
The 4 day training will cover:
• theoretical background of the method
• prior evidence base for its effectiveness in different populations
• core procedures and manualised protocol
• detailed video-examples of each stage in therapy
• training exercises and feedback
• discussion of practical applications and preparation for implementation
