STAS 2017 Pre-Conference: Addressing Challenging Behaviors

Seattle Teachers Autism Symposium 2017

STAS 2017 Pre-Conference

Addressing Challenging Behaviors: Prevention is the Best Intervention

Do students you work with have challenging behaviors that are difficult to manage? Do you find yourself out of ideas for how to address challenging behaviors? This workshop is designed to help educators understand and prevent challenging behaviors. Strategies presented are based on the scientific principals of ABA and will aim to create a responsive learning environment to prevent challenging behaviors from occurring. In addition, strategies for teaching appropriate replacement behaviors and tips for what to do “in the moment” will be included. There will also be group work, case presentation and opportunities to ask presenters questions.
