Description

Abstract:

There is a saying that ‘if you’ve met one child with autism, you’ve met one child with autism’. Yet, when it comes to designing assessments and treatments for clients, we often apply a one-size-fits-all model. There is a need to prepare clinicians to adapt, modify and individualize behavioral protocols to meet unique client and environmental characteristics. In this interactive workshop we will: (a) discuss the importance of individualizing and adapting behavior assessments and treatments, (b) review and apply a decision making guide for designing individualized functional analyses, and (c) discuss coaching strategies to increase the fidelity with which functional analyses and function-based interventions are implemented.
