James W. Partington, PhD, BCBA, Director of Behavior Analysts, Inc., will be conducting two distinct presentations on successive days. You may register for both, or for either one alone.

Day One: Understanding and Changing Challenging behaviors for Young Children with Autism: Practical Advice for Parents and Professionals.

This day is designed primarily for parents, instructional assistants, and in-home tutors. The focus is on how to use effective behavioral language teaching techniques to identify the behavioral barriers that prevent your child from engaging in everyday family and school activities (e.g., sitting at the table and eating with others, going to the grocery store without a tantrum, toileting issues, etc.).

Day Two: Designing, Implementing and Troubleshooting Verbal Behavior–ABA Programs

This workshop is designed primarily to provide professionals who are familiar with the ABLLS–R with skills to analyze problems with the development of certain skill areas (e.g. spontaneous use of language and social interaction skills) and to provide them with strategies for addressing those problems. Discussions regarding the analysis of problems in the acquisition of skills, evaluation of educational priorities, and determination of IEP objectives for several students will be conducted.
