Virtual Conference: I Can Do It Myself! Behavioral Strategies to Increase the Independence of Children with Autism

Presented by Bridget A. Taylor, Psy.D., BCBA-D of Alpine Learning

With the advance of behaviorally based programming, children with autism can learn many skills never thought possible.  Children with autism can learn to talk, play with toys, socialize with their peers and become active functional participants in their families and communities.  The goal of any intervention program, however, is to help individuals with autism perform these responses without supervision and direct prompts from adults. The first hour of this presentation will review specific skills that enhance the independent functioning of individuals with autism across a range of curriculum areas and behaviorally-based teaching strategies to achieve independence.

During the second hour, course participants will be able to identify research-based strategies to promote independence, identify procedures to increase motivation to teach independent skills and identify the reasons for addressing curriculum areas related to independence.  The last 15 minutes will be used for Q & A.

ASHA, BCBA, CTLE, OT/OTA, PT/PTA CEUs are available for a fee of $15.00.
