Description: Developmental delays and risk for autism are able to be identified as early as 6 months of age. ABA can be an effective infant intervention, but requires special consideration to avoid disrupting infant attachment. This workshop will demonstrate effective ABA strategies appropriate for infants, research support for infant ABA, and how to write developmentally appropriate learning objectives. Branded ABA-based treatment models that have been adapted for infants (Early Start Denver Model, Project Impact) will be reviewed as well as developmentally-based treatment models (JASPER) that can be integrated into ABA programs. Practical tips for working with infants and case examples will be provided.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) list the essential components of an effective infant ABA program; (2) identify treatment models that have been successfully adapted for infant intervention and explain the research support for this implementation; (3) write developmentally appropriate treatment objectives for infants.
Activities: Learning objectives will be met by lecture, small group discussion, case examples and guided practice.
Audience: Early interventionists, Practitioners
Content Area: Practice
Instruction Level: Intermediate
