There is no other provider that can hold a candle to UK YAP - a parent

Seminars & Conferences


UK Young Autism Project seminars are conducted by our highly-trained consultants and senior tutors. Our seminars are presented in a workshop format, covering theoretical and practical training; this allows delegates to access comprehensive training in important aspects of behavioural treatment.

We are an approved ACE provider and therefore continuing education credits for BCBAs and BCaBAs can be gained at some of our events.

Seminars are conducted periodically; topics include:

  • Teaching Language and Communication skills
  • Establishing and Utilsing an Enriched Environment
  • School Shadowing Training
  • Training new Tutors on your Team
  • Generalisation of Skills 
  • Advanced Theory of ABA

Please contact us via our contact page if you would like more information about our seminars.


In addition to organising our own seminars, we have been invited to speak at influential conferences and conventions both in the UK and abroad:
