Description: When ABA is delivered using developmentally appropriate treatment targets, and delivered with developmentally appropriate strategies treatment progress is accelerated. Generalization is easy, and children are motivated to learn. Research supporting the use of developmentally appropriate ABA will be reviewed, as well as practical strategies for agencies and providers. Strengths and limitations of the approaches will be covered. Specific treatment model examples such as ESDM, PRT and JASPER will be used as illustrations of the principles. Information on typical learning sequences and curriculum will be provided. Examples will include infants through adults. Resources for additional training and information will be provided.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) State the advantages of developmentally appropriate ABA; (2) List relevant treatment models, the age range for which they are appropriate and how to access training in those models; (3) Provide examples of developmentally appropriate strategies and treatment targets for infants through adults; (4) Explain the empirical support behind developmentally appropriate ABA.
Activities: The workshop format combines lecture, small group discussion, video review, small group activities such as practice writing treatment objectives, and role play to practice treatment strategies.
