The Bay School’s Experts in Autism Speaker Series Presents Free Autism Seminars for the Community

04/19/07


The Bay School, a specialized school for children and adolescents with autism and other developmental disabilities, in collaboration with the San Jose State University (SISU) Psychology Department and SISU C.A.R.E.S., and the San Andreas Regional Center, is sponsoring two free autism seminars, “Behavioral Social/Language Skills Training for Children with Autism,” and “The Effects of Motivational Operations on Stereotypy: Implications for Assessment and Treatment.”

“Behavioral Social/Language Skills Training for Children with Autism” will examine how a multidisciplinary approach can be combined with direct observation to develop evidence-based intervention programs to address social/language skills challenges in children with autism. The seminar will be presented by Coleen Sparkman, M.A., CCC-SLP and Jill Young, Ph.D., BCBA, on April 27, 2007 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 pm.

“The Effects of Motivational Operations on Stereotypy: Implications for Assessment and Treatment” will address stereotyped motor and vocal mannerisms (e.g., hand flapping, echolalia) and will summarize a series of studies conducted by presenter John Rapp, Ph.D., which evaluated the effects of stereotypy on children with autism. The seminar will be held on May 17 from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00pm.

All seminars will be held at the San Jose State University Student Union in the Umunhum Room.

Educators, families, students, pediatricians, early intervention specialists, child psychologists and psychiatrists, and others wanting to learn more about autism are encouraged to attend.

Board Certified Behavior Analysts can earn Continuing Education credits for attending the lectures if they pre-register online.
