Homecare agencies can accommodate virtually all care needs in the home; however, the cost of such care can become unaffordable for many people. Homecare service costs are directly related to the number of care provider hours spent. Reducing the number of provider hours is the only way to reduce costs. Learn about effective technologies and programs that can minimize care hours. These programs include automated delivery of compliance packaged medications, automated pill dispensers, electronic monitoring systems and meal delivery services. The use of technology in senior living communities can increase safety and enhance quality of life for both residents and staff.

iCan Bike Clinic

iCan Bike Clinic

iCan Shine’s iCan Bike program teaches individuals with disabilities how to ride a conventional bike and become a lifelong independent rider! iCan Bike uses a fleet of adapted bicycles, a specialized instructional program and a trained staff to teach individuals with disabilities how to ride a bike. Riders attend the same 75-minute session each day for five consecutive days (M – F) whereby they are physically assisted and encouraged by two volunteer “spotters”. Over the course of the 5-day camp the adapted bike is adjusted to gradually introduce more instability in an effort to challenge riders at their own individual pace. 

When: Monday July 17th through Friday July 21st (Orientation Sunday, July 16th at 2pm)

Where: Ascent Community Church, 550 S. McCaslin Blvd, Louisville, CO 80027 (Old Sam's Club)

Cost: $150

Register: Download the following documents and contact Julie Darrow at 720-272-8231 or info@autismboulder.org to get the registration process started.

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Building Cooperative Behaviors: A Free Introduction to Behavior Analysis

Jeff Kupfer, PhD, Board Certified Behavior Analyst

In order to build cooperative behaviors in others, we must learn to change our own behavior patterns and practices. This class provides a brief overview of selected evidence-based behavior principles based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We will review the dangers of using coercive and punitive methods to change behavior, and will focus on positive alternatives.

Parents, Caregivers, Professionals, Educators/Teachers and Community Members will learn to use Cooperative Behavior Building methods for behavior change by:

  • Recognizing and understanding the five principles of behavior to enhance relationships

  • Distinguishing between proactive and reactive methods and how these two approaches result in diverse outcomes

  • Drawing upon Cooperative Behavior Building methods to increase positive behaviors and decrease challenging or problematic behaviors

Classes are free and open to the public

Class are held at the John Taylor Conference Center at 1665 Coal Creek Drive in Lafayette
9:00AM-1PM / Registration begins at 8:30AM

To register via phone, dial 303.457.5719 or via the web https://secure.imaginecolorado.org/ssl/trainingClassSignUpFree.htm

Autism Society of Boulder County at Progresh

ASBC at Progresh

What: ASBC at Progresh
Where: Progresh, 9499 Washington Street, Suite 50, Thornton, CO (located next to Mid Air Adventures), Directions and Map
When: July 31st, 10am-noon
Cost: $5 donation per participant (optional)

RSVP deadline: By July 30th. Clickhere to register

Progresh is an innovative training center dedicated to ski, snowboard, skateboard, BMX and tumbling progression, in a safe and comfortable environment. Their mission is to provide a unique action sports experience, for all skill levels, to Colorado’s Front Range and beyond. This event is open to people of all ages who have ASD, as well as their siblings, friends, and family. We started this event with kids and teens in mind, but it's developed into an event for all ages and it's a great workout!
  
This is similar to the open gym format, however all participants need to arrive promptly for safety orientation and to sign waivers. Parents or guardians are required to remain at the facility. Progresh coaches will guide us as we explore all Progresh has to offer. This includes trampolines, airbags, tumbling, slacklining, and more. If you want to try the ski/ snowboard or skateboarding, please let us know ahead of time as they will need more staff to accommodate.

If you haven't given this activity a try because you feel you or your child needs a more gradual introduction to the facility and the rules, then please contact Julie Darrow at info@autismboulder.org to set up a 1:1 private session. This is not intended to be a free private lesson to improve skills. It is meant to facilitate a gradual introduction for someone who has trouble trying new things in a group setting.
