Half-Day Workshop

Seminar: Treatment 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 evidence-based treatment of these critical skills. Topics include (1) understanding the complexity of challenging behavior, (2) interpreting functional assessment data to design a behavior intervention plan, (3) antecedent management strategies, (4) reinforcement strategies, (5) crisis intervention, (6) data collection and (7) evaluating the effectiveness of the intervention. The workshop includes lecture, case studies, sample intervention plans, and discussion.

*This is the second workshop of a 2-part series on Assessment and Treatment of Challenging Behavior
