So What’cha What’cha Want? – Teaching Children with Autism How to Make Requests

Free virtual parent training

Please join John Tolson, M.Ed., BCBA, LBA, in this virtual training as he provides families and caregivers with the basics on teaching requests.  

Teaching a child functional communication by making requests for wants and needs reduces frustration, diminishes problem behavior, and helps improve overall quality of life. This training will cover basics for teaching requests, building up language to make more complex exchanges, and teaching a child to make requests in lieu of engaging in problem behavior. There will be opportunities for questions throughout the training.  See flyer here.

He is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and a Licensed Behavior Analyst (LBA) in Virginia.
