Mastering Challenging Behaviors: Using Applied Behavior Analysis Techniques to Address Challenging Behaviors in the School Setting *

Presented by SPG Clinical Supervisors (3 hrs)

Behaviors are considered a form of communication to convey a need for attention, access to tangibles, escape/avoidance, and sensory needs. This seminar will focus on the use of evidence-based practice to address challenging behaviors in the school setting and is applicable for both SLP’s and Psychologists. Participants will gain a solid foundation in the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), including the ABC’s of behaviors, the reasons behaviors occur, as well as behavior modification techniques. Participants will leave with the knowledge and skills to both identify and improve challenging behaviors in the classroom and/or therapy setting.
