Experts on Autism: ABA and Applications to Promote Competence in Older Individuals with Autism

By Dr. Peter Gerhardt, President & Chair, Scientific Council, Organization for Autism Research

Presented by The Bay School Guest Lecture Series.

4:00 - 5:00 p.m.

Despite a rapidly growing body of knowledge regarding effective, behavioral analytic intervention with school age children with autism, adult outcome studies indicate that the majority of individuals graduate to lives of limited independence and community engagement. This free presentation will provide a brief overview of some of the more relevant challenges to effective intervention with older individuals and offer recommendations toward improving outcomes utilizing interventions based upon the principles of applied behavior analysis.

The Bay School, one of May Institute's four May Centers for Child Development, is a nonpublic, nonprofit school dedicated to providing education and intervention services to individuals with autism and their families.
