DESCRIPTION

Workshop: Managing Challenging Behaviors

Workshop: Managing Challenging Behaviors Dr. Ronald Leaf (Ph.D),

Pioneer in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Co-founder and Director, Autism Partnership

It is very common to find individuals with autism exhibiting disruptive behaviors. These challenges can be incredibly difficult for families and educators. If their problems are not dealt with, they may persist into adulthood and significantly reduce their quality of life. Behavior modification is often seen as an outdated or basic method. However, its application can be complex and requires extensive training to achieve good results.

This one-and-a-half-day workshop is designed to give participants an overview of effective procedures that can be used with all ages and functioning levels. The case studies presented will illustrate how to work on behaviour issues in various scenarios.
