[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]


Resurgence, renewal, and reinstatement are concepts from basic science research that have real and practical home and school applications for practitioners who work with learners that engage in difficult behavior, both those with autism and those that do not have autism. During this three-hour webinar, Dr. Bloom will translate the research from the lab into practical strategies one can use to manage difficult behavior in real-world circumstances.

Learning Objectives:

After attending this event participants should be able to:

1) Discuss spontaneous recovery in the classroom and describe what is happening and how to respond.
2) Describe what to do when a student asks appropriately for something that is unavailable or they are not able to access, regardless of how nicely they ask for it.
3) Evaluate if teachers classroom staff are “not doing what they were told to do” or if what has been asked of teachers and classroom staff members is unrealistic in the setting or the protocol is written in a way that is off-putting, too difficult, or unmanageable to those required to follow it.
