Blomidon Golf and Country Club, Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada – Parents, Corey and Vanessa Ivany were among 60 people who participated in a day workshop, ‘Navigating the ABCs of ASD;.

The workshop organised by The Autism Society Newfoundland and Labrador — Western Chapter was aimed primarily at parents and caregivers, although teachers and health professionals from around the region attended.

The article in The Telegram told how Vanessa’s son, Cohen 4, was diagnosed with autism 2 years ago.

She told The Telegram that it took about eight months before they could get Cohen an appointment to be assessed at the Janeway Children’s Hospital in St. John’s. Following this came the official diagnosis.

Cohen receives applied behavioural analysis (ABA) treatment and Corey said he is now starting to talk.

Vanessa told The Telegram that the workshop was an opportunity to become involved and helped gave them an awareness of what’s available through the society.

They also felt that the workshop session, which covered applied behavioural analysis treatment, occupational therapy, supports in the school system, assisted living and transitioning to post-secondary education would provide them with some valuable information.
