Webinar:  Producing Meaningful Improvements in Problem Behavior of Persons with Autism

Presenter:  Gregory P. Hanley, Ph.D., BCBA-D, Professor of Psychology, Director, Behavior Analysis Doctoral Program, Western New England University

Problem behaviors like meltdowns, self-injury, aggression, or intractable stereotypy will often require address at some point in the life span of a person diagnosed with autism. There is strong evidence supporting behavioral intervention to address these problem behaviors, with better outcomes evident when (a) the functions of these behaviors inform treatment, (b) skills relevant to the core deficits associated with autism are developed in the treatment, and (c) the treatment prepares the person with autism for life’s inevitable ambiguities, disappointments, and opportunities. In this webinar, the practical functional assessment process that informs these sorts of treatments will first be described. The skill-based treatments that are personalized from this process will then be reviewed within the context of several controlled case studies.  Learn more>>

This webinar is hosted and sponsored by Autism New Jersey as part of Autism Society of San Francisco’s Virtual Symposium on Severe Behaviors

The webinar is free, but registration is required.
