2 Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: Assessment Of Challenging Behavior In Children And Adolescents With Autism*

The ultimate success of a treatment program for children and adolescents with autism is one that decreases challenging behavior and increases self-control and functional skills. This workshop addresses assessment of challenging behaviors. Topics include (1) understanding the complexity of challenging behavior, (2) conducting a functional assessment using direct observation (3) conducting a functional assessment using indirect assessment tools, and (4) interpreting assessment data to identify functions/underlying reasons that maintain the challenging behaviors. The workshop includes lecture, sample assessment tools, sample assessment data, and discussion.
