2-day intensive hands-on workshop focused on behavior reduction

Behavior reduction is hard. Disruptive behavior slows learning, not just for the learner with behavior issues, but for peers as well. Functional Behavior Assessments are expensive and not always conclusive as to the function of behavior problems. It is important to maximize effectiveness of FBA's and if possible, avoid them all together.

By using precision behavior measurement system, teachers and behavior support team members can significantly reduce the time needed to eliminate behavior problems. Precision behavior measurement provides an “individualized GPS” that navigates the behavior team through what is working or not working in behavioral reduction programs. Then the best strategies for each individual learner are uncovered and strengthened.

This workshop provides participants with the knowledge and skills to resolve challenging behavior expeditiously and effectively. Participants will spend 2 days in hands-on intensive and interactive sessions with a combination of lectures, discussions, and group and solo activities.

Workshop participants will learn to:

  • Use objective decision rules governing reductive and growth targets

  • Augment functional assessment with the Functional Analysis Celeration Chart

  • Integrate behavioral objectives with pinpoints

  • Triage reductive behavior within a Precision Teaching classification model

  • Scale continuous observation procedures

  • Apply individual behavior statistics to analysis and decision making

  • Analyze behavior visually and quantitatively on the Standard Celeration Chart
  • Employ a performance acceleration model to challenging behavior targets

12 BACB Type 2 CEUs are available for BACB attendees


Today, the solution to challenging behaviors is an elaborate process of assessing the problem behavior, determining its function, implementing a function matched intervention, and measuring and monitoring the effectiveness of an intervention. But the functional analytic system can leak information along the entire funnel—making behavior resolution difficult and, in some cases, unobtainable.

Precision Teaching offers the answer.

First, a pinpoint is made. Pinpoints facilitate the accurate detection of target behaviors Second, behavior analysts discern the real magnitude of the challenging behavior by leveraging the dimensional properties of behavior. Third, a standard visual display quantifies individual behavior and offers a proportional view of the data. The display enhances the immediate detection of functions and subsequent patterns of responding.

Beyond the core analytical tools, all behavior change agents do function-based interventions. Applying the “fair pair” technique offers an additional method for meaningfully growing adaptive repertoires.

Now that we know, we can't not do this.

Who is this workshop for

This workshop is geared towards education and therapeutic professionals who care about accelerating outcomes with their students and clients through applied data science. Attendees should champion the natural science of behavior and be dedicated to finding and appling the best tools and methods that science provides. We provide specific content for the following groups:

  • Applied Behavior Analysts - BCBAs, BCaBAs, RBTs

  • Behavior Supervisors

  • Special Education & General Education Teacher-Leaders

  • Parents with advanced ABA knowledge & skills

  • Behavior Therapists

Our team is writing much better IEP goals.

Keynote Speakers Include:

rick kubina and sal ruiz
