Description

ABA has recently become very popular in early intervention settings, but there has always been a role for ABA with adults with intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Additionally, the number of children with autism spectrum disorders has increased we can anticipate that, family members who have received high quality services for their children, will search for high quality adult services. This webinar will explore recent research on adult with disabilities including (a) curriculum development; (b) skills training procedures; (c) evaluating preferences for staff and establishing better relationships with staff; (d) challenging behavior; and (e) staff training and supervision. The webinar will also describe tensions between contemporary service ideology, service underfunding and how ABA will have to adapt to new service environments such as person centered planning.
