Outline of the events in the 2-Day Inclusion Workshop

By

I am being contacted by individuals who want a more detailed breakdown of the workshop agenda.
Here it is and here is what others are saying about the Maloney Method.

From Hong Kong
I invited Michael Maloney to assist me in establishing a classroom for autistic children in Hong Kong. I did so on the recommendation of Dr. John Partington whom I have known for a number of years. Michael set up the academic program as part of the overall classroom activities. He trained our teachers, monitored the data, and coached them to make decisions as the data indicated a need.
The children made remarkable academic progress with the Maloney Method, including eventually have some children placed in selected regular classes. Combined with the social skills, behavioural management program, the speech and sensory integration programs, our children gained significant skills in a variety of areas. The children were also very motivated by the Maloney method and the teachers love the systematic approach. We have later established a school catering for autistic children. The school aims to provide support for autistic children with a vew to moving into regular classrooms.

I would whole-heartedly recommend the Maloney Method as one more part of the program to provide inclusion for ASD children.

From Canada

The Behaviour Institute serves children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder and we frequently work on improving their academic skills in areas such as reading, spelling, and math. There is no better approach to do this than the Maloney Method, I have Michael for over 40 years and his knowledge about how to get gains in academic skills is unmatched. We use Michael’s programs to achieve outcomes for the clients we serve.
