Stay Apart but Stick Together

We are here for you, even though we will stay apart

As practitioners in the field of ABA we know these are challenging times for our members.  Many of you may be in limbo about whether you can continue to provide quality services to your clients. We are all trying to figure out how to deliver services safely, which is causing a lot of disruption to our client’s routines and service delivery, all while dealing with the uncertainty of where the next few months will take us. This is taking a toll on all of us.

We want to update you on what the Board of ABA Australia is doing to help our community during these uncertain times. We feel now more than ever we want to ensure solidarity with our members and support the ABA community.

We’ve added a page on our website to list various resources in relation to COVID-19. This page will be updated regularly with new content. We ask if you find a resource you think the ABA community would find useful please email us the link to the webpage. If you have a document you created and want to share it, again send it to us and we will post it on the website.
  • Send all resource links to admin@auaba.com.au.
  • Title the email ‘COVID-19’.
  • Please include a brief title to the link to make it easy to organise on the webpage.

Connecting with others: We will offer opportunities for social hang outs where practitioners from around Australia can get together virtually and discuss how they are going and share ideas for making it through these uncertain times. These will be set up in the coming weeks and you can book your hangout time via our website. We’ll keep the group size small so everyone can have a chance to connect. 

Our conference has been postponed to ensure that we can provide a safe environment for everything to gather and enjoy learning, seeing old friends, and making new ones. We have moved our conference date to 23rd - 25th of July 2021 and it will be held at the World Square Rydges Hotel in Sydney. If you have purchased a conference ticket, made a submission, or purchased a sponsorship package, you should have received an email about this. Please check out the website for more information.

We care about the well-being of our members and the ABA community, and we urge everyone to follow best practises to stay safe and healthy during this time. We know that these are uncertain times, but we will get through this together – we are here for you.


Kind Regards,

Tessa, Alayna, Shell, Alex, Megan, & Josh
