Day One: Understanding and Changing Challenging behaviors for Young Children with Autism: Practical Advice for Parents and Professionals.
James W. Partington, PhD, BCBA Director of behavior Analysts, Inc.
{View Brochure}

Parents frequently have concerns about the behaviors of their child with ASD–behaviors that are complicated by the fact that the child often doesn't understand requests. Another critical factor is that many of these children are not motivated by the types of praise used to teach typically developing children how to behave. This workshop specifically addresses practical issues and will give methods for analyzing problem situations and developing strategies to solve those problems.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Identify the basic behavioral principles used to analyze both appropriate and undesired behavior.
  • Increase appropriate behavior by developing positive instructional control, and teaching alternative behaviors.
  • Observe behavior to determine why a behavior is or is not occurring and its probable function(s).
  • Structure situations to encourage desired behavior and avoid unwanted behavior.
  • Use simple but effective data collection procedures.
