Visit UDiscovering at the 44th Autism Society National Conference and Exposition

July 10, 2013

UDiscovering is a Silver Sponsor at the Autism Society’s 44th National Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, taking place July 10 through July 13. As a Silver Sponsor, we will have an exhibit booth at the conference highlighting our latest product, Discovering Behavioral Intervention: A Parent’s Interactive Guide to Applied Behavior Analysis (DBI). Come visit us at booth F20 at the Pittsburgh Convention Center to learn more, check out our great giveaway items, and enter a raffle to win a three-month subscription of DBI.

DBI is a 10-module online learning guide to applied behavior analysis (ABA) for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder. DBI was created by child development experts at UMass Medical School’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center, in partnership with parents of children with autism. The guide uses a mix of family-friendly text, videos, interactive graphics, and immersion exercises to teach why ABA is so commonly recommended and how it should be conducted. Parents also learn how to advocate for and secure high-quality behavioral services, and effectively monitor and evaluate their child's progress, so they can have a powerful voice in their child's development.

In addition to parents, professionals who provide ABA services, participate on an interdisciplinary team, or supervise others in an early intervention program for children with autism will find DBI to be a valuable resource for their professional toolbox. DBI teaches ABA while providing an inside look at how families cope with an autism diagnosis.
