Objectives: Participants will have a general understanding of behavior principles and variables affecting behavior. Participants will learn about replacement behaviors. Participants will have a general understanding of implementing positive behavior supports in both the home and school settings.

Narrative: Participants will learn the principles of applied behavior analysis and positive behavior supports to identify functions of behavior, replacement skills, and interventions for classroom and home management. Participants will be provided with tools to implement interventions for behavior change in the classroom, home, and community setting.

Demonstration of Professional Learning: Participants will be able to identify a challenging behavior with a learner, determine the function, and replacement behaviors to reinforce. Participants will make these decisions based on data collected.

 

Addressing social and mental health challenges for individuals on the Autism Spectrum: Evidence Based Practice, Julie Wigmore and Brenda Brown from College Internship Program

Intended Grade Level Audience: Early Childhood Educators, Elementary School Educators, Middle School Educators, High School Educators, Caregivers

CIP staff will be presenting two evidence based practice modules used to support students through social and clinical challenges at our CIP Berkshire Center. PEERS is an evidence based treatment manual used to teach and support healthy adult relationships and social skills for young adults on the Autism Spectrum. “Facing Your Fears” is a small group module which aims to assist young adults in overcoming issues related to anxiety and fear in social settings. Two CIP staff members will introduce the core concepts used in each of these modules, describe how they are used at CIP, and consider how they may be incorporated by parents, clinicians and educators with the young adults in their lives.
