Description

This 3 hour event includes a 2 hour webinar and 1 hour interactive case discussion. Once you register you will be given the option to submit a case for review. Dr. Pearson will select 3 from the audience to include in the case discussion portion of the event.
Many individuals with autism exhibit challenging behavior when confronted with non-preferred events or activities, such as participating in medical and dental visits, receiving a haircut and terminating preferred activities. Systematic programming utilizing the principles of applied behavior analysis (ABA) to increase the toleration of such non-preferred events can increase compliance and tolerance as well as potentially establish a generalized repertoire of appropriate alternative responses and self-regulation skills that can be used in other non-preferred scenarios. This webinar will educate participants about how to develop, plan, and implement effective, evidence-based programming to increase the toleration of non-preferred activities and items in individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. Through an analysis of research literature and several case studies, participants will learn how to identify and break down goals into successive steps and how to shape toleration skills utilizing aba-based interventions. Since programming can occur in school, home, and/or community settings, participants will also learn best practices and implementation procedures for working collaboratively with families/caregivers.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

(1) reference evidence-based research supporting the development of toleration programming for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities;
(2) describe how the principles of ABA can be applied to identify and develop interventions that teach  individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities to tolerate non-preferred events and/or stimuli;
(3) describe the components of effective teaching strategies related to toleration programs;
(4) apply best practices for effective collaboration and parent training can be applied to extend teaching strategies across school, home and community environments
