Event Details


Imua Family Services presents a TWO-Day training on Saturday, June 28th and Monday, June 30th with M.Ed. Board Certified Behavior Analyst, Thomas M. Caffrey. 

This two-day training will help teachers and parents by zeroing in on the core deficits that define the diagnosis:  functional communication, social skills, and problem behavior. The presenter will demonstrate, through extensive use of video case studies, how basic behavioral principles can be applied effectively across settings and people to address everyday challenges to improve the  quality of life for children with developmental disabilities and their caregivers.

 Specifically, participants will learn about practical strategies that can help them to:

  •  Establish rapport with unwilling learners
  •  Expand a child’s interests and activities
  •  Utilize criterion-referenced assessment to target developmentally-appropriate IEP goals
  •  Teach functional communication skills to vocal and non-vocal children
  •  Engage children in meaningful social situations with their peers
  •  Expand language repertoires during individual and group natural environment teaching (NET) activities
  •  Utilize research-based teaching procedures to establish and maintain instructional control during discrete trial training (DTT)
  •  Implement reinforcement-based approaches that reduce problem behavior
  •  Develop effective schedules that maximize learning opportunities and eliminate down-time

Our programs include therapeutic services for children with special needs, disabilities, and developmental delays (birth through age six), Autism Services, a Newborn Hearing Screening Program and an Inclusion Preschool.  

Dream Imua supports Maui County's neediest children, granting them a day of their dreams and empowering them to believe that they are special and there is hope.  Camp Imua is a week-long, overnight recreational camp for 50 school age children with special needs supported by an individualized trained care team.
