Description: BCBAs are challenged to reduce and prevent students with autism and other developmental disabilities from engaging in problem behavior including aggression. These severe behavior challenges limit a student’s ability to learn appropriate academic, vocational, and social skills and become a successful, independent adult. As schools have limited resources including funding and trained personnel, BCBAs are tasked to fix these challenges with quick, easy, effective, and low-cost solutions. This workshop includes 50 detailed interventions for school-based BCBAs to create positive, easy fixes, on a shoe-string budget. These strategies include ABA “buy in”, personnel training, curriculum, behavioral assessments, and program evaluation.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to: (1) define and demonstrate shaping and use of the feedback model to create behavior change. (2) Define and implement 50 ways to reduce/prevent problem behavior in school. (3) Use a data-based measurement system to evaluate the efficacy of the intervention(s).
Activities: Hands -on activities to learn and practice shaping skills with the use of the feedback model Instructional video of how to provide feedback and shaping lecture, small group activities to describe and illustrate 50 evidence-based practices
