Description: This workshop will present attendees with a range of topics often encountered when delivering behavior analytic intervention to children and adolescents with autism and related disorders. Topics presented will include the non-linear/constructional management of misbehavior, the measurement of client assent and the use of assent data to inform instructional decision making, and the integration of augmentative/adaptive communication devices into instructional programming.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to: 1) Define child assent and describe ways of measuring assent. 2) Describe the types of intervention decisions that can be made through analysis of assent data. 3) Describe ways in which curricular sequences can be modified to incorporate augmentative or adaptive communication systems. 4) Analyze instructional sequences for possible stimulus control problems that may arise if a child responds using an augmentative or adaptive communication system and describe plans for correcting such.
Activities: Throughout the workshop, participants will practice discriminating between appropriate and inappropriate instances of all of the concepts presented as well as practice applying skills relate to each learning objective given case study data. Participants will receive printed and digital copies of all materials presented in the workshop, along with a supplemental and expanded CD-ROM containing additional training and expansion materials as well as recommended readings.
Audience: This workshop is appropriate for clinicians, parents, and teachers who are responsible for supervising behavior analytic intervention programs for children with autism and related disabilities.
