The Chilton Autism Network will hold its next meeting on Jan. 12 at 6:30 p.m. at First United Methodist Church of Clanton.

Guest speaker David Bicard, a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), will present a program on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), which is derived from scientific approaches to understand behavior and how it is affected by the environment.

ABA is also widely recognized as a safe and effective treatment for autism.

In his interactive talk, Bicard will describe what ABA is and is not, as well as provide suggestions for developing a home program and tips for finding qualified providers.
