Agenda

Monday, Jan. 15, 2018
9:00 a.m.-Noon - ABA 101

In this short talk, the presenter will define Applied Behavior Analysis as a field and will highlight the goals and methods in which we work to help individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, their families and supporting professionals meet mutually identified objectives.

1:00-4:00 p.m. - Decoding Behavior

What is the behavior telling you? In this exploratory workshop, we will apply some basic principles so that we can begin to decode and identify some possible function(s) of behavior.

9:00 a.m.-Noon - Got Challenging Behavior?

The presenter will identify critical components of evidence based interventions developed to treat challenging behavior and teach new skills for individuals with ASD. 

1:00-4:00 p.m. - DO THIS Not That

Social and communicative deficits are at the core of Autism Spectrum Disorder and can result in skill deficits and excesses of maladaptive behaviors. Explore a set of evidence-based interventions and teaching strategies to replace deficits with a set of meaningful and functional skills to increase success. 

Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018
9:00 a.m.-Noon - Get Motivated!

Let’s explore motivation. If we can understand it, then we might be able to understand how we can apply strategies to target motivation in an attempt to increase the effectiveness of teaching targeting new skills or decreasing challenging behavior. 

1:00-4:00 p.m. - Breaking it Down

Sometimes complex skills can be overwhelming to teach and learn all at once. In this presentation, we will explore some strategies to teach these skills to learners.
