(Video Length: 1:39:48) Presented by registered psychologist Cindy Hsiang (MAPS; MEdPsych; BSc (Hons)), The Impact of Autism on Child Development guides parents with children on the spectrum to select early intervention approaches that suit the child’s characteristics and parenting beliefs via the following three segments:
1) Unpacking the diagnosis of autism, and its impacts on child development. Particularly in areas of social, emotion, cognition, sensory, and behaviour
2) Explaining protocols of various evidence-based early intervention approaches, and providing examples of some approaches
3) Unfolding support for children on the spectrum beyond early childhood and school years, as well as support for siblings and families
(Video Length: 1:19:00) Toilet training is one of the developmental milestones in early years; however, there are many different perceptions regarding when and how to start and complete the process. The current parent training aims to provide information of prerequisite skills for toilet training, differences between urine and bowl control, as well as spontaneous versus habit toilet training. The training also looks at how to deal with obstacles in toilet training, generalisation of toileting in various settings, and toileting regression.
