Description: Several studies have shown that Applied Behavior Analysis can provide an in-depth structured approach that, if administered by qualified personnel, can lead to positive effects on social behavior. Socialization between individuals is an important characteristic in human development. In individuals with autism, there is a profound deficit with social skills and with social reciprocity. The purpose of this workshop is to demonstrate teaching adaptive behavior such as private and public behavior, avoidance of danger, peer refusal skills, personal space, right and wrong and avoidance of engagement in self-stimulation. The importance of using Applied Behavior Analysis such as shaping, teaching interaction and Discrete Trial Training in teaching these skills will be demonstrated. In this workshop, you will learn what happens before an undesired behavior occurs, what to do after it occurs and how to set goals to change the behavior. You will also learn about strategies you can use to teach your student replacement behaviors.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to: (1) Identify three core deficits; (2) Identify three precursors which lead to inappropriate behaviour; (3) Identify three different teaching procedures and strategies that can be used in teaching adolescent students about abstaining from undesirable behaviour.
Activities: Workshop objectives will be met using instructional strategies including lectures, discussion, case review, small group practice activities and group feedback.
Audience: Behavior analysts, BCBAs, BCaBAs, teachers, psychologists, speech therapists, social skills instructors and other professionals who work with individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, specifically in the areas of social skill development.
