“Why Are They Doing That?:

Practical Strategies for Conducting a Functional Behavior Assessment”

Description:

Individuals with ASD exhibit a variety of problem behaviors that interfere with their learning and often a long-term quality of life. As professionals, conducting a functional behavior assessment leads to understanding the underlying purpose of the behavior while identifying replacement behaviors. In this workshop, participants will examine the functions of behavior and identify proactive strategies for teaching replacement skills and modifying antecedents. Participants will write a behavior intervention plan which includes reinforcement techniques. Dr. Lori will provide evidence based strategies for conducting an FBA and practical strategies for implementation in a variety of settings.
