Promoting Efficient and Durable Treatment Outcomes for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Professional Continuing Education Seminar Series


Join us for this workshop that is part of our intermediate to advanced-level workshop series for human services and behavioral healthcare professionals working in clinical, educational, medical, and rehabilitation settings.
 
Instructor: Tom Cariveau, Ph.D., BCBA-D
 
Description: The current presentation will cover recent research examining strategies to increase the efficiency of intervention procedures for teaching children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Because of the incredible discrepancy between the number of individuals requiring behavior analytic services and the number of trained clinicians, it is critical that behavior analysts continue to develop and refine methods to increase the efficiency and durability of treatment gains. Topics will focus primarily on the refinement of methods designed to promote vocal verbal behavior with individuals diagnosed with ASD including instructional format and pacing, instructive feedback, and emergence of untrained verbal behavior. Considerations regarding early identification and early intervention for individuals with ASD will also be discussed.
 
Continuing Education Credits: 1 Continuing Education Credits for BCBA and APA
