Event Details

About the Presenter

Dr. Chris McGinnis is a licensed psychologist, Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and pediatric sleep researcher and serves as Clinic Director of Boys Town South Florida’s Behavioral Health Clinic headquartered in West Palm Beach with collocated services in primary care pediatric offices around the county. He speaks regularly on behavioral pediatric topics, effective parenting, distinguishing science from pseudoscience in pediatric medical and behavioral healthcare, and non-psychopathological alternatives to traditional conceptual systems in behavioral health. He has assisted in the development of the National Autism Center’s National Standards Project and has served as a subject matter expert for the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.

Training Description

Almost 9 out of every 10 children with neurodevelopmental disorders suffer chronic sleep problems, and yet answers exist for parents as to what they can do to improve their children’s sleep and in turn their overall daily functioning. Dr. McGinnis will discuss reasons for poor sleep, how it affects functioning as well as behavioral diagnosis, and ways to improve it.
