ABA provides many positive strategies to create meaningful behavior change in individuals with autism. Unfortunately, this power in the wrong professional’s hands has occasionally resulted in situations that are not focused on the person being served and have sometimes resulted in a negative reputation for the entire field of ABA. This training will focus on understanding the function of behavior and teach positive proactive strategies that can be implemented by professionals and families to decrease problem behaviors and increase functional skills in a way that respect the individual being served. The program will focus on 6 major approaches to create behavior change through preventative procedures and use examples on some of the common issues observed in individuals with autism. There will also be opportunities for real-world application to attendees’ loved ones or clients using easy strategies for even beginning learners of autism.
