About this Event

The California Consortium for Behavior Analysis (CCBA) is proud to introduce our invited speaker Dr. Linda Haymes, as she presents on "Ready for College and Career! What Now? Self-Management tools for preparing individuals with disabilities for colleges and careers". 2 CEUs are offered at no additional cost to you!

One result of rising rates of autism spectrum disorder in individuals without intellectual disabilities is that more young adults with diagnosis of ASD attend college. Compared to even a decade ago, individuals with ASD have more opportunities to attain higher education. Experiencing success at the undergraduate level calls for an individual’s ability to demonstrate advanced social skills as well as communicative and executive function skills. Given social, emotional, behavioral and organizational challenges and a lack of support, many students with ASD do not make it through university. The rates of unemployment, even for college educated people with ASD are high. One of the most effective evidenced-based interventions that lead to a lifetime independence and success in college and career is self-management skills. This presentation provides a background on college and career preparation with an emphasis on self-management strategies supported with an ever-changing technology.
